Support Don’t Punish Day 2016
Join us for the Melbourne event of
the global Support Don’t Punish Day Campaign!
International Support Don’t Punish Day aims to draw attention to the harms of failed drug policies, from incarceration and the denial of adequate service, to the death penalty. This is a global day of advocacy to raise awareness about the health promotion and human rights of people who use or have used drugs, especially those who’ve had contact with the criminal justice system.
A number of organisations are joining together to put on a day of action in the Nicholson Street Mall, Footscray from 11am – 5pm.
Our main event runs from 1pm – 1:40pm
Greg Denham from Law Enforcement Against Prohibition will host the Speaker’s Session. Speakers include:
Tony Parsons from Dandenong Drug Court
Michael Miller from Family Drug Support
Debbie from Family Drug Support
Dave Taylor from the Victorian Alcohol And Drug Association
Adam Wilson from Fitzroy Legal Services
Join in the international photo campaign with our interactive photobooth, mural painting, mock prison, sausage sizzle and raffle for official Support Don’t Punish Day t-shirts.
You can support the event on social media by joining the “thunderclap” to coordinate an international social media campaign.
