Lindt donates to Autism Speaks, which if you haven’t heard about yet is a truly evil organization that openly supports the torture of autistic people through electroshock therapy in order to “cure” them. They spread misinformation about autism and their programs encourage the perception of autistic people as mentally ill. I’ve seen articles discussing how the messages of Autism Speaks have contributed to parents murdering their autistic children.
Don’t believe me? Do a 30 second google search on the subject and it will pop right up.
If you want the news from the horses mouth go to this page and type “ECT” into your find bar. It will take you right to the sentence where they talk about using electroshock on autistic kids.
The WHO has called for a worldwide ban of ECT therapy.
There are plenty of great and much more informative tumblr posts about the issue out there, though. The main point of my post is to inform people who wish to boycott Lindt of the subsidiaries. Do not support any of these chocolate brands, they all have funding that ultimately goes back to Autism Speaks.
