: 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.
The week starts at the CND. With more drug user activists attending than ever bedore, it will be a really meaningful wheel on so many levels. The week brings home just what it Is that governments across the world want to brag about, what they wish to implement across their nation, or publicise calls of urgency to the global cOmmunity and finding new ways to avoid or engage with civil society! Happily, there is more engagement than ever before with civil society, including our community!
Released in June 2017 -but such an important film for the activist community of people who use drugs and our peers around the world, we thought we should share again on the week of the CND 2018, in Vienna.
A truly incredible film by Drug Reporter and INPUD -which looks at the lives of people who use drugs in a way without sentiment but lots of power, emotion as well as being a really beautiful look into the global community of activists - people who use drugs. We are proud of knowing the incredible people who are in this film, who do this work -and who created such an uplifting and insightful look into our daily lives, all around the world. Don't miss it.

"The film gives us an astonishingly intimate look at the lives,
tribulations and inspiring resilience of drug using human beings."
Gabor Maté M.D
"The film takes us through one day in the life of eight people, from seven cities, in seven different countries of the world, from morning until night. They all have something in common - all of them use drugs. But these people are not defined by their drug use. All of them have their unique personalities, stories, and social networks. And the environment in which they live, the attitudes they face, the laws that regulate drug use, and the health services available to them have an enormous impact on their lives. This film is not only about drug users - it was also produced by drug users. It strives to challenge our common myths and preconceptions about drugs and the people who use them. It gives a voice to those representing one of the most marginalised communities of our world, to tell stories untold about hate, love, suffering, and happiness. It shows how they engage in social activism to break the silence and fight the stigma that shadows their days." (Drug Reporter)
