Day of Action 2016

Events were held in tents in both La Paz and Cochabamba to provide information around the need for medical cannabis and on the harms of repressive drug policies. A demonstration took place at the Sunday Fair of La Paz on 26th June with cultural and artistic performances against harmful drug policies. The action in Cochabamba focused on raising awareness among the population about the objectives of the campaign, the harms caused by the prohibition-led drug policy, as well as the need to develop harm reduction and promote medical cannabis. For more information, read the reports for both La Paz and Cochabamba.

In Bolivia, the campaign was an opportunity for Puente, Investigacion y Enlace (PIE) to discuss decriminalisation and harm reduction through workshops with national officials and the police. The action included the broadcast of a video on women incarcerated for drugs offences in Bolivia, and the distribution of flyers during the Gay Pride. PIE also reached out to the media with interviews on national TV around drug use, health and HIV. For more information, in Spanish, please read this more detailed report on the day of action.
