International Remembrance Day, 21st July 2018

• Our communities demand an end to austerity, an end to the war on drugs and people who use drugs.
• We demand to be decriminalised.
• We demand for our drugs to be legalised so that we do not risk our health and lives every time we use drugs.
• We demand access to comprehensive harm reduction and means with which to test the contents of our drugs, as well as widespread access to life-saving overdose reversing naloxone.
• We demand an end to  social exclusion, and a recognition of our human rights. We do not forfeit our human rights because we use drugs.
• We are the people who use drugs, and we demand to be recognised.

On Support. Don't Punish Day - Visit the Kazakhstan Embassy!

: on the 26th June, drug user groups along with other supporting organisations are encouraged to take a letter to your cities Kazakhstan embassy - and deliver it personally, taking pictures to send out across social media in protest. There are very real fears that if OST is lost in Kazakhstan, it will be lost in surrounding countries as well. Fight for our peers, fight for humane, evidence based drug policies and effective, life saving drug treatment.

When Doctors See the Light -from our Community

When we witness someone else really 'get it' when it comes to the work we are doing and how important and useful our community can be in that process, it is a great moment to see. In this context, on the frontline of drugs, drug use and drug users, people can and do have 'lightbulb' moments, epiphany's and revelations. Much of it occurs due to people having the opportunity to share a bit of their lives with each other,  communicating openly about what they do and why they do it -and then witnessing why it works so effectively.  I believe a doctor in the UK recently had one such moment, quite a revelation of sorts -but I will let him tell you about it himself.
