On April 30, 2017, ANPUD issued a letter of support expressing gratitude and solidarity for the stand taken by Senator Leila De Lima to protect human rights and save lives of people who use drugs in the Philippines. Duterte plotted against her and got her arrested to supress her. She has been unrelentingly fighting to stop the war on drugs in the Philippines while she is in prison.

Bangkok, Thailand (18th October, 2016) – As ASEAN Ministers meet in Singapore this week at the 5th ASEAN Ministerial Meeting on Drug Matters to agree a new regional 10-year plan on drugs, civil society groups highlight the urgent need for governments to promote and protect the right to life.
In this submission, the HRDP, ANPUD and INPUD map out key tensions between the Philippine’s current national drug strategy, including the widespread extrajudicial killings of people suspected of using and dealing drugs and the full and effective realisation of economic, social and cultural rights.
The Asian Network of People who Use Drugs (ANPUD) has grave concerns based on the updated 2016 guidelines and recommends the actions that governments in Asia need to prioritize. Please read the full press release and share it with all the relevant stakeholders.
