PELUANG launched its first campaign from 22 June 2021 – 26 June 2021. The campaign is launched in the footsteps of “Support. Don’t Punish”, a global grassroots-centred initiative in support of harm reduction and drug policies that prioritise public health and human rights.
The campaign seeks to spread awareness about harm reduction, breaking the stigma of communities targeted by the “war on drugs” and punitive drug policies. It also aims to strengthen the mobilisation capacity of communities targeted by the “war on drugs”. In this campaign, we have collaborated with PENGASIH, the team behind “Ayahku, Dr G”, Nuffnang and SLED to bring together a week-long campaign packed with educational and fun activities.
This session talked about the devastating effects of the Malaysian war against drugs on a “no hold bars manner”. Expert from this field will talk about their expert areas, Dr. Adeeba is a World Health Organization fellow Science Council, Dato Halim is the former Director General for AADK, Azri, a youth activist & Samantha a legal activist.
This exclusive film screening was followed by a discussion panel consisting of Hidayah Hisham, Fikri and Dr. Sangeeth Kaur as they explore the themes of discrimination and difficulties experienced by family members of the incarcerated population, specifically those convicted for drug-related cases.
