Question Time: Drug decriminalisation (non-LSS))

Description: Leicester Prison Resistance present
Question Time: Drug decriminalisation

Mark Gawthorpe - Chair and Host
Kevin Jaffray
Lee Brooks
Peter Thompson

"Join us for a Question Time style discussion, with a chance to ask questions from our panel of inspiring guests.

"Why drug decriminalisation? Why do we need to see addiction issues as a health matter and not a criminal justice issue.

"Why have progressives and those on the left failed to recognise the socially revolutionary concept of peer-led Recovery communities, and how this could be expanded to revitalise our fractured and smashed society... outreach methods have been tried and tested; what is Community Recovery?

"What are the dangers of the new Mega-Prisons, and why is a resistance to them needed.

"All of our panel have experienced problematic drug use and issues with addiction, some of them have experienced prison. Come and listen to the voices from the frontline; the most valuable voices that are far too often ignored. Why and how do people get well, and why is this key to important alternatives to a broken and failing society.
