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.
From the June 26th 2013 Event.
Thursday June 26th 2014 will be the second “Global Day of Action”. This is the UN International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, but also the UN International Day in Support of Victims of Torture.
The “Global Day of Action” will highlight how people who use drugs continue to be abused, stigmatised, tortured, beaten and even killed in the name of the ‘war on drugs’. The video below summarises what was achieved in 2013, and how you can get involved.
