The United Nations (UN) has foiled an attempt by a phony "human rights" group to convene a conference on UN property in Geneva, Switzerland.

According to the Tribune de Genรจve, the "Youth for Human Rights" group ("Des jeunes pour les droits de l'homme") had planned to hold a conference it was calling "The 6th Annual International Summit on Human Rights." The group had initially received permission to have the conference at the UN site, but alert staffers thwarted their plans almost at the last moment. The group members were told to leave the UN grounds, and were forced to hold their conference, instead, in the lounge of an expensive nearby hotel.

The "Youth for Human Rights" group has only one goal: the "global obliteration of psychiatry." The group "cloaks" itself in the rhetoric of human rights organizations, in order to seem like an honest member of civil society. The truth, however, is that for this organization, "human rights" is solely and entirely a euphemism for "obliterating psychiatry."

It could be argued: "Who cares? Why not let these two dozen fanatics have their little meeting. No-one would even notice." The real trouble starts, however, when the conference is over. In 2008, "Youth for Human Rights" had a similar meeting at UN Headquarters in New York City. As soon as it was over, they launched a blizzard of press releases to boast that they were accepted as a human rights organization by the United Nations. This is not in fact the case, but they used their presence in the UN building to bolster this claim.

All sane and rational people want to support human rights. Young people in particular -- the group's recruiting target -- have the idealism and energy to join organizations claiming to work for human rights, as well as the naivete and inexperience to believe cultish anti-psychiatry nonsense told them by people who seem to speak with authority. The danger of an organization called "Youth for Human Rights" thus becomes clear.
