"He deserves freedom."

Paula Gould

This guardianship is not protecting Peter’s well being, rather giving him and end of life sentence of solitary confinement. Any court that would allow this injustice does not know the meaning of compassion.

Isabel Gibson

I hope with this signature that Mr. Max is able to live out the rest of his life surrounded by the people he loves.

Paul Escudero

All too often the legal community's meddling in lives and families under the pretense of helping is motivated by greed and power and victimizes causing grievous harm to the very persons they claim to be helping.

David Pandeli

I met Peter 35 years ago at a gallery that was being readied for a show that night in San Diego CA. He was very gracious and even though he was busy with an preparations and a tv interview, he made the time to talk to me for a while. Ever since that first meeting, everytime he saw me he always remembered my name and always came over to talk to me. A few years later he enquired as to why I was in a wheelchair so I explained that I was born with spina bifida and what had gone on through the years. One day I got a call from Peter asking if I could get my medical records from the time I was born so he could show them to some doctors he knew. I never ever forgot that offer to help me from this special human being.

I've run into Peter several times on the street, it takes him a few minutes to realize who I am, then he points and waves at me to come over, when I do, it's like his memory rushes in and he remembers many things. He is scared, confused, and needs help. To remove his beloved cats that brought him comfort is cruel. Peter will be freed, just like Britney Spears. End this unconstitutional guardianship now. Peter is a national treasure, who has supported many causes, and this is how we repay him?! This must end.

"Because he is purported to not be free. And I care."

Marthe S.B

This is inhumane, and isn’t the guardianship ment to protect him, not destroy him. Corrupt system and its all about the money, so disgusting.

Peter Max needs to be freed immediately. Guardianship abuse must come to an end.

There needs to be oversight when someone loses their capacity to live independently. The interests of our most vulnerable must be protected. Add to this basic human rights that this American treasure is quite possibly being leeched of, his creative light dimmed by over-medicating and accelerating his decline is deplorable.

I have loved Peter Max designs from when I was a young girl. Formerly a resident of NY, I was able to see his originals in Manhattan which was such a thrill. I lost my father to dementia & can not imagine being prohibited from seeing him every day! My heart goes out to his Daughter. Prayers this will be resolved soon so he may be reunited with his loved ones!

This is a violation of human rights. These are our friends, our family members. It could happen to anyone unless we stand up and speak out. Change is necessary. Taking advantage of people should be prohibited.
