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.
