The Barcelona Declaration
On February 2019, more than 40 womxn from different European and Asian countries met in Barcelona to discuss intersectional feminism, drug policies, harm reduction and Human Rights, thus initiating the Barcelona Declaration – Womxn fighting back against the War on Drugs.
“On International Women’s Day 2019, we declare that the War On Drugs is a war on Womxn Who Use Drugs. The War On Drugs is racist, sexist, classist and heterosexist, and disproportionately affects womxn of colour, youth and womxn in poor communities. As womxn, trans and gender non-conforming people surviving this war, we reject the widespread stigma, discrimination and criminalisation we face in our daily lives. We call for complete reform and transformation of the current system of prohibition. We call for an end to the ignorant and negative rhetoric.”
