After three intense days the Harm Reduction International Conference came to an end today. If you could not make it to Melbourne, don’t worry: as always, the Drugreporter team was there to film. Watch and share! Updated with the opening, closing and press conference videos!
We are grateful to the Aboriginal owners and custodians of the land on which we could attend this wonderful conference – and we consider ourselves privileged to interview so many participants in such a short time. All of the activists and professionals we interviewed are doing a wonderful job in their countries to replace drug policies based on fear and lies with drug policies based on love and respect. Please distribute this video widely!
