JES now covers a network of regional groups with a large number of activists. JES demand the right to a life of human dignity with drugs. We want legal survival aids for current drug users in line with their needs.” Check out their very well produced magazine:

  1. Hi Guys, I have been a fan of your magazine and website since I first came across it. Like me, you guys believe in education, not ignorance. Love your work… I think you should add NUAA’s “Users News” magazine to your listing.
    NUAA has been in existence for 25 odd years, and was the first injecting drug users peer run organisation in Australia. (and possibly the world) Have a look at our website if you haven’t already… Bless you all, Paul G.

    Hey there poppy,

    There is a mag circulated in Sydney, Australia called “Users News”. I’m unsure if it’s circulated Australia wide but it’s been around for some years at the needle exchanges, injecting rooms and methadone clinics in Sydney town, at least.
