Day of Action 2018

City: Stockholm
Organisations: The Stockholm Drug Users Union, HarmReduction.NU

There was a gathering at the office in the meatpacking industry area just outside the city centre of Stockholm, to print out flyers, coordinate the day and prepare for the day. First, the group went to Sergels Torg, the main place for drug dealing in the heart of the city. Flyers were handed out and photos were taken with the SDP message and t-shirts as well. Second, the group walked to Kungsträdgården where a lot of people gather to eat lunch and continued to hand out flyers along the way. Lastly, the group took the subway to Medborgarplatsen and Björns Trädgård, where there are many activities for marginalised groups. Some police officers came by for discussions and they were eager to talk about drug issues, including the idea of consumption rooms. Other NGOs were also present along with users and non-users.

Day of Action 2017

In Stockholm, the Stockholm Drug Users Union held a combined Remembrance Day/Global Day of Action on 21st to commemorate lost friends and family. Members gathered near a tree planted as a permanent memorial and remembered those no longer with them. Eulogies and poems were read – it was both a sombre and enjoyable afternoon

Events to mark The Memorial Day also took place in the region of Skåne and the city of Varberg, on the Swedish West Coast.
