Support don’t Punish, 2014

Support Don’t Punish is an international advocacy campaign launched under the joint initiative of the International Drug Policy Consortium (IDPC), the International Network of People Who Use Drugs (INPUD), the Harm Reduction International (HRI) and the International HIV/AIDS Alliance.

In 2013 CUT gathered around 120 people for the Support don’t Punish campaign for a flash mob at the Caudan Waterfront in Port-Louis, the capital of Mauritius to raise awareness on the harms caused by the criminalisation of drug use.

As a follow up on the 26th of June 2014, CUT with the help of different partners gathered 150 people to take a symbolic picture outside the “Petit Verger” prison, and then distribute tracks in Rose-Hill, Quatre-Bornes, and Port-Louis, 3 major towns in Mauritius.

To capitalize on the World Cup 2014, CUT designed T-shirts that looked like football shirts, in order to capture the attention of the general population.
