The HCLU organised a video training in May 2012 to teach 14 harm reduction and drug policy activists how to use video in activism. Now we have selected some of the movies they have made.
Drug policies are often designed and implemented without and/or against those people who are the most affected by them: people who use drugs. The principle of “nothing about us without us” should be applied to drug policy making and service delivery. Local communities of drug users should be meaningfully involved in drug coordination mechanisms, as well as in health and social care services. We cannot change public attitudes to drugs without making the voice of people who use drugs heard. Drugreporter is a partner and ally of the International Network of People who Use Drugs (INPUD) and its regional chapters. Our Russian and English language video blog, DUnews is run by two drug user activists, Igor and Alex, who film about burning issues affecting drug user communities in the Eastern European and Central Asian region.
