Safe injecting rooms for addicts in Victoria
This petition had 19 supporters
Heroin addicts in Victoria are not only overdosing regularly but are dying in the streets, they are using public spaces to inject heroin and as a result syringes and injecting paraphernalia are found around schools, laneways and supermarkets.
Victoria, unlike N.S.W does not support safe injecting rooms for heroin addicts. The Victorian State Coroner has recommended these rooms only to be knocked back by The Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews, which in effect is causing the death of some of our most vulnerable people.
As filmmakers we recently worked with heroin addicts in Victoria Street, Richmond and produced a film titled 'Smackmovie' which can be downloaded at www.smackmovie.com
This film showed us that there is a need for safe injecting rooms. Anyone who watches it will undoubtedly see that need.
