As June approaches, and the first-ever United Nations Special Session on Narcotics draws near (June 8-10 in New York), plans are being finalized for events all across the globe in protest of the global Drug War. At least 35 separate events will be held in at least 30 different cities, from Belgium to Tel Aviv, Amsterdam to San Francisco. The events, all part of the "Global Days Against the Drug War", will take place primarily over the weekend of June 6-7.
A special event will be held starting on Monday, June 8 in New York, which will allow for the participation of people from all over the world. Details of this event, including how you can become involved, no matter where you are, will be available starting next week. For information regarding events in your part of the world, or to make an organizational endorsement of the sign-on statement, go to http://www.stopthedrugwar.org/globalcoalition/.
