Today, June 26th, is the United Nations’ International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking – a day on which many governments celebrate their contributions to the global ‘war on drugs’. In some cases, governments have even commemorated this day by holding public executions or beatings of people convicted of drug-related offenses.
We are helping to “reclaim” this day by participating in the 2nd annual Global Day of Action, organized in NYC by the International Drug Policy Consortiumand Harm Reduction Coalition. You can help highlight the failure of the war on drugs and emphasize the need for better approaches for people who use drugs by turning up and raising your voice.
