In Copenhagen, the Gadejuristen (Street Lawyers) and Brugerforeningen (Danish Drug Users Union) held a series of events. They started with outreach in the city’s open drug scene, distributing presents and information. In the afternoon, a public forum was held – including presentations from a mother whose son was killed by the police, and from a former policeman who resigned after announcing that he could no longer enforce drug laws because of the harms they caused.
