Activities in downtown Toulon will see AIDES activists dressed as “prisoners” holding signs that say “According to you? Why?”. The idea is to encourage exchanges with passer-by on the criminalisation of people who use drugs, on the new laws on cannabis, on the different laws on drug policy around the world and also on the benefits of alternatives.
Organisations: AIDES Bretagne, Baracanna, Orange Bleue, Collectif SDPBZH
On this occasion, the Breton SDP collective (Aides, Baracanna and Orange Bleue) decided to carry out two actions to bring professionals and public authorities to think about another drug policy centered on individuals and health. First is a call for citizenship and recemmonding new policies in a letter that will be sent to the MILDECA manager. There will also a be a “Drugs Store” in Rennes which is an immersion in a world where drug use would be controlled, where prevention and health would prevail over repression, where consumers would no longer be stigmatised.
