"Conservatorships are a disgraceful attempt at owning another human being; often used with the excuse of 'care' when the real incentive is to incapacitate someone and steal their money. This man's case, along with many others throughout the nation, has clear signs of misappropriation of monetary funds- i.e. financial abuse. Please stop encouraging financial abuse of the elderly by sitting by and doing nothing."

Animal Rights Activist, Art Lover
"Peter Max is an icon and a beautiful, creative soul. He should be around people and with his animals that bring him happiness and support. This is abuse."
Former Employee and Friend
"He needs to be in legal and physical custody of his family, he is probably being drugged with antipsychotic drugs like Haldol or Seroquel by his care takers whether he is agitated or not just to make it easier for them. This is about making his life the best quality possible not his nurses. I have seen this too many times it is cruel and abusive."
"He should be surrounded by love ones in his most fragile time of need. I've personally seen this type of oppression and the victim and families l suffer. 1 hour visitations with so little time left to live isn't morally right."

Peter is an icon, not only for his artwork but for his work as a human being. He is deteriorating alone. This is beyond cruel. He has been swept under the rug and forgotten. Please help while he still has years left."

You need to release him from the control of your dirty court systems, or at least release him into the care of his loving daughter, Libra. We have a growing movement of people who will stop at nothing until judges across this country STOP participating in inhumane guardianships, and right now? #FreePeterMax is at the top of our To-Do list.

Animals give great comfort to those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Art, music can help calm them. Their families deserve to be able to interact and share memories with their loved one. It is wrong to treat anyone the way Peter Max Is being treated currently."
"Love his work."
"Fighting the injustice."
"Because people should be free."
"We are supposed to live in a country that believes in tjustice and liberty yet you deprive a man of his family, force him to spend his days in total isolation and are doing this against the will of his family and against his wishes. How is this in any way justified? It can't. There is no justification for this. Free him from this prison and let him live his last days with his family. End the torture you are putting him through."
"Everyone has right to live their life with dignity, to be pulled apart from your family and friends so predators can use a corrupt legal system to strip you of your assets, mental health, time with family and friends is abhorrent to me."
