Nick and Ash discuss the week in drug news.
6th June marks the United Nations International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. Historically, this date has been used by governments to showcase “progress” in drug control in highly punitive terms.
The Global Day of Action seeks to reclaim and shift that day’s narrative. Every year, on or around 26th June, an increasing number of activists all over the world join this unique and multifaceted show of force for harm reduction and drug policy reform.
This year, we will be focusing on the intersection of justice and AOD (Alcohol and Other Drug) issues in Victoria, with the launch of the Law Enforcement Action Partnership (LEAP).
Law Enforcement Action Partnership Australia’s Greg Denham will host the event, with a range of guests talking about justice issues for people who use drugs.
The event will finish up with a panel discussion and Q&A.
