Description: Hungary is on the verge of an HIV epidemic among drug users. Despite the first HIV transmissions among drug users, the largest Hungarian needle and syringe program in the 8th district has been forced to shut down, because of political attacks. The HCLU’s campaign movie shows the inhumane circumstances of drug use in Budapest, and calls for sane drug policies, including supervised injection rooms in the city. We call on viewers to sign an online petition for a drug litter free 8th district.
