LIBERTY ACTIVISTS' LIST v 1.43 08/1996 So you're sick of the "War on Drugs"? Here's an international list of over 300 organisations in 19 countries which support drug law reform although most of them are in the US. Look for one in your area. Please distribute this list widely, and send in any groups which are not listed already. There's an active group here for almost any taste. Joining your favourite organisation is best, though if you're worried about persecution, just send anonymous money or a letter of appreciation. Take advantage of your democratic rights while you still have some! If you're already in a law reform organisation, you can use this list to contact others with similar interests, and share information or facilities. Just knowing that there are others working on these issues can be a big morale booster. The power of pro-liberty organisations can be multiplied many times by fast and efficient communication, which spreads news and promotes co-ordinated action. Electronic mail and conferencing is the most efficient way to achieve these necessary abilities. For example, this list doubled its size in eight months of circulation over the Internet. I strongly encourage active groups and individuals to use this powerful technology. This listing was originally kicked off with a list of groups reproduced with permission from the February, 1992 issue of _High Times_ magazine (contact details at the end of the list). Since then, it has grown considerably through the kindness of those who have contributed additional entries, including Macca Macpherson, Dave Thomson and Keith Lim. Please reproduce and distribute widely with this acknowledgment. Post it on bulletin boards if you can. HOW TO LOBBY POLITICIANS You might be interested in my brief, practical guide to communicating with your elected representatives, which is available at: http://www.zeta.org.au/~aldis/lobby.html PLEASE SEND NEW LISTINGS I don't know any more about most of these groups, than what appears here. If you know about other active groups not listed here, or if any entries need correction, please e-mail me at "aldis@zeta.org.au", or mail to the address below, for incorporation in future editions of this list.
