NO MORE DRUG WAR!
February 20 is a national day of action, with events happening in multiple cities across Canada. Please join us in Toronto.
WE DEMAND AN IMMEDIATE END TO THE CRIMINALIZATION OF DRUGS.
In 2017 over 4,000 people in died in Canada of preventable drug overdoses.
This is horrific. It is completely unacceptable. It is a criminal justice issue, and it needs attention now.
Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour are disproportionately targeted and criminalized in the war on drugs.
We are calling for immediate widespread expansion of needle distribution and overdose prevention services in Canadian federal prisons.
Join us on February 20 at noon for a rally and press conference. Please be in touch if you or your organization would like to speak or help prepare material before the action on February 20.
We acknowledge that this event is taking place on the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, Petun, Seneca, the Mississaugas of the New Credit Indigenous peoples. This territory is covered by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Haudenosaunee and the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the lands and resources around the Great Lakes.
