Day of Action 2017

In Mexico City, ReveredeSer held panel discussions centred around two questions: “What are the risks and damages generated by prohibition and the war on the drugs?” and “How does the war on drugs impact our communities? How do we build a community in the face of the war on drugs?” Discussions were wide ranging – including topics such as stigma, human rights, women and incarceration, and harm reduction.

In addition, two articles were published in VICE, one on the societal harms of the war on drugs, and the other on Mexican harm reduction initiatives.

Day of Action 2013

“Support. Don’ Punish” Day of Action was organised by Espolea in Mexico City. As they did not get the permission to demonstrate on any symbolic location of the capital, they organised a small gathering and created a series of videos related to the Day of Action.

Espolea also conducted several interviews with public radios, calling on the Mexican government to open the debate on drug policy reform.
