We Are Drug Users – Voices From The Global Movement Of People Who Use Drugs! July 2014.
“We Are Drug Users – Voices From The Global Movement Of People Who Use Drugs” was launched at “Through the Eye of the Needle – A Celebration of Drug User Activism” event at the 2014 International AIDS Conference in Melbourne.
“The drug users’ movement has been in existence for more than 30 years and in 2014 it continues to grow stronger in the face of urgent health, legal and human rights issues threatening our community.
This film offers only a glimpse of the scale, diversity and achievement of the global drug user movement – working for progress towards a better world for us all.
Drug user organisations have been developed in response to a war against our community – against us as people. We have been hit hard by the (otherwise preventable) consequences of the war – overdose, Hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HIV, imprisonment, violence, torture, sexual assault and rape and the death penalty.
You are about to meet people in our global community who are dealing with the consequences of the war on drugs. Some of the background many can identify with: the difficulties, prejudices, and often violence attached to failed drug policy…They will move you, they will impress you, you will remember.”
This film was launched “Through the Eye of the Needle – A Celebration of Drug User Activism” event at the 2014 International AIDS Conference in Melbourne. Its just brilliant!
