Bloggers Unite boycotting the event International Day in Memory of SSRI Fatalities

I have expressed here my fear that Bloggers Unite would not accept the event "International Day in Memory of SSRI Fatalities" created last February since NIDA is one of their sponsors.
They accept but a very strange situation is happening: the event is visible but is not at the list of events of Bloggers Unite.
I went to the discussion of Bloggers Unite and this is the answer:

After sending TonyB some proves the event exist he says again:

    Ana, BU is set up for anyone to manage an event. Go to the home page. Near the botom, click start and event.

This page means nothing? Where is it at Bloggers Unite list? I would have to do it all over again although it is there?

International Day in Memory of SSRI Fatalities

February 07, 2010

Raise Awareness about SSRIs violent behavior that has already killed many people and changed some people's lives that took these medicines.

SSRIs are being prescribed not only for those who are suffering Major Depression but also for people who are in distress because of life problems.
These antidepressants such as Prozac, Effexor, Paxil/Seroxat, Zoloft, Cymbalta and many others promote serious side effects, are very hard to withdraw and many people have already reported the hell they have to go through while tapering them.
One of the most terrible side effects, also a withdrawal symptom, is suicidal ideation that is not triggered by the disease that has led physicians to prescribe them but it's drug-induced.
Traci Johnson, a 19 years-old healthy volunteer hanged herself during Cymbalta clinical trials and was found dead in 7th February 2004
That is why this is the date for the International Day in Memory of SSRI Fatalities.
Violent behavior also leads people who are taking SSRIs, lost dosages or are withdrawing to harm other people as is demonstrated by reports of people who have killed induced by antidepressants.
Patients are not informed of these problems and many others like the teratogenic effects that has already been reported by some women who took SSRIs during pregnancy.
Although there are many testimonies at the Web FDA, physicians and laboratories do not consider them as a source to Post Marketing Surveillance Trial which is the 4th phase of clinical trials.
They just claim that these testimonies are only anecdotal evidence and not scientific data.
These are some of the aspects of this serious problem mental healthy and all the population of the world are facing: medicines that can make you kill yourself or others among other side effects.
It has already gone too far. People have the right to be informed about all of these harms and also that the theory that SSRI's antidepressants were done is an hypothesis that is questioned by serious psychiatrists.
I hope we can make people know what kind of problems they are facing when prescribed a SSRI antidepressant.

This International Day in Memory of SSRI Fatalities is an idea whose time has arrived. Almost every family in every country in the world has been touched by the horrors of these drugs.

At www.SSRIstories.com there are over 3,600 cases from the media which mention a tragedy that occurred while taking an SSRI or SNRI.

Thank you to all those who are willing to join in for this "International Day".

Thank you for joining and raising awareness. I hope that together we can make a difference and make more and more people know about side effects and withdrawal problems related to antidepressants SSRIs.
It is a very hard job but I believe we can do it.

I would have to create it all over again and ask people to join? It looks quite strange.

I will create this date in another way.
