#FreePeterMax

Francene Shed

"Abuse in any form is always criminal and cannot be sanctioned!"

Janice Bailey

"Love his work, esp. on NCL ships. Let's help this artist!"

Pamela Chattergoon

"This is how older people are taken advantage of."

Lynne Allen

"This is legalized kidnapping. There needs to be a severe consequence to those who capitalize on the misery of their clients."

Iryna Kosel

"Peter Max is being horribly treated by his guardians. He should be being looked after by his friends."

Cynthia Langford

"Peter Max's art is the banner of my own youthful generation like nothing mere words can approach. So, come on all you hippie brethren out there (you know who you are). Now is your chance to repay this soulful contributer to our lives, and all it takes is your signature, for oh so very much he added to our lives."

Roxanne Lorentzen

"This is a horrific injustice being done to a wonderful man and his family!"

Shara Nielsen

"Heartbreaking and infuriating all at the same time! The name of the guardian should be made public and their bank/financial records made public as well so the family see what is really going on."

Christine Murphy

"This degrading way to share your last days on Earth also happened to man I know. It was sickening to view a strong stubborn man have to go through his last days being controlled against his wishes in a life of misery against family wishes."

Melinda Lewis

"I live in fear of being forced into a guardianship in old age. So many are exploitative and simply used for someone to live off the assets of another's life work."

Shirley Lechowicz

Len Messina

"This should be on world media but especially in the U.S.! "
