At the occasion of the “Support.Don’t Punish” Day of Action, members of the Thai Civil Society Coalition for Harm Reduction (12D Network), human rights activists and people who use drugs attended a street rally to raise awareness of the harms caused by the war on drugs.

They gathered at the front of Government House in Bangkok, holding banners demanding drug policy reforms to end the criminalisation of drug use, human rights violations against people who use drugs and compulsory detention.

The 12D Network had prepared a letter to the Prime Minister, Ms. Yingluck Shinawatra, demanding that the government reformits drug control policies. On her behalf, the Secretary -General of the Office of Narcotics Control Board (ONCB), Pol. Gen. Pongsapat Pongcharoen, met with the 12D Network at the rally and officially received the letter.
