Until August 2017, Victorian Police are conducting nightclub raids across Melbourne under the name Operation Safenight.

There will be no warning before they search a venue, and this will include checking patrons with sniffer dogs in the line before they have entered, posing as undercover buyers, patrolling club toilets, as well as inspecting vehicles used to arrive at the nightclub. Read more about OperationSafenight.

Annie Madden from Harm Reduction Australia joins the program on International Harm Reduction Day 2017 (#IHRD) to talk about what harm reduction is, why it is a simple approach to understanding the harms associated with drug use and why applying it across many of our drug problems can help move these on-going issues toward humane outcomes that will benefit the community.

Sunday 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Harm reduction and drug law reform activism, a counter voice to current drug narratives. Breathing reality into the myths, fabrications and distortions that exist around drugs. News, academia, and culture.
