Please Help Us To Debunk The Drug War in 2014!

Dear Fellow Drug Policy Reformers!

Thank you so much for supporting Drugreporter in the previous year - this was a truly historical year for the international drug policy reform movement! 

We have produced several remarkable movies in 2013, such our award-winning film featuring Insite, the first supervised injecting site of North America. We attended and filmed the 2013 session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) to make make it more transparent and accountable. We continued our Count the Costs serial with a movie on the devastating consequences of the global war on drugs on security and development. We travelled to Romania to film about the new HIV epidemic among drug users and launched a campaign to support harm reduction in Romania. The Drugreporter filming crew was invited to film at the International Harm Reduction Conference and the International Drug Policy Reform Conference. We prodcued a video on cannabis regulation in Colorado. 

You can follow our activities on Facebook, on Twitter and on the Drugreporter website

Our mission as the chronicles of the drug policy reform movement is far from over. Next year will be a busy year for us. We are going to be at the forefront of change with our cameras to document human rights abuses, to mobilize people and to train activists. Our team was invited to film about the innovative legislation of New Zealand on new psychoactive substances and about the HIV epidemic among injecting drug users in Greece, to train young activists in Nigeria, Indonesia and Thailand to use video advocacy. All these activities are impossible without your support - the Drugreporter does not accept any money from the government or political parties.

Please go the Global Giving website and make a tax-deductable donation now!

Best regards and happy new year!
