Cities: Reus and Barcelona
Organisations: CATNPUD, ARSU, APDO, AUPAM, XADUD
This year the ARSU association, in collaboration with other groups, hosted the event at the University Hospital Sant Joan de Reus because it is symbolically special with a statue of a woman who had just given birth to a child. ARSU activists (30 people) installed an information tent. The statue held one of the banners of the campaign and was witnessed by hospital visitors and directors of the hospital. This theme was chosen to vindicate the rights of women who use drugs, who are doubly punished by prohibitionist policies and punished when their capacity and legitimacy are questioned in relationship to aspects related to motherhood. To this end, the authorities of the same hospital and local government were informed, as well as different press releases to cover the event. APDO, AUPAM and XADUD carried out an awareness campaign among their members in their respective venues and took photographs of the different events in Barcelona.
