Counterfit's Memorial for People Who Use Drugs was established to acknowledge the high number of drug-related deaths due to the War on Drug Users. The project will create a permanent outdoor monument to the lives of people who use drugs who died in our community. It also aims to strengthen our resolve to end the war on people who use drugs and its devastating impact on our friends and families.
Save this date for the launch of COUNTERfit’s Drug Users Memorial! We are very excited to announce that the event will happen on Friday, July 19th here at 955 Queen St. E. The time is tentatively set for 11 am, but a flyer will be posted with more details in June. We are also looking for volunteers to help keep things running on that day.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
