Day of Action 2013


In Beirut, the Day of Action was coordinated by local NGOs “Skoun” and “Soins Infirmiers et dévelopment communautaire (SIDC)”.

At the Palace of Justice, activists and advocates distributed flyers and documents about Lebanese drug policy to judges and lawyers, and held a press conference alongside the Ministry of Justice to promote treatment as an alternative to incarceration.

Participants also disseminated information in the street on the importance of decriminalising people who use drugs, and the campaign was also featured on local TV stations.
