Drugs Peace – Support Don’t Punish 2014
Support Don’t Punish
We are planning another, bigger Support Don’t Punish event in London this year – on Thursday 26th June at Parliament Square.
JUNE 26th is the day that some governments/cops publicly shoot dead ” sellers of illegal drugs” as a way to deter others,but over the years, we have discovered that they were also killing simple users…either way, is this an acceptable way of addressing SOME drugs in our world?
The plan is to gather at Parliament Square for 10 / 10.30am. We will distribute t-shirts etc on the day as people arrive, and will have a giant inflatable billboard as well.
Livestream from the event.
This was an open discussion at the Bank of Ideas. February 10th 2014.
Andria E-Mordaunt: We need alternatives to the war on drugs and war on poor.
An academic, activist and devoted mother, Andria tells about the ‘addicted survivors of the global war on drugs as part of the global war on the poor’
“Harm reduction” is often made an unnecessarily controversial issue as if there was a contradiction between prevention and treatment on one hand and reducing the adverse health and social consequences of drug use on the other. This is a false dichotomy. They are complementary.
