How refreshing it is to finally see a policy from a political party that recognises the need for pill testing throughout the broader community and not just at music festivals. While we have to accept that festivals have become the battleground for this important reform it's incredibly important for people to understand that drugs are consumed in homes, nightclubs, at sporting events and almost everywhere people gather socially. The benefit of pill testing in cities and regional towns as well as music festivals can not be undervalued. <3
Unfortunately the duopoly system of two major political parties is well entrenched here and most parts of the western world. Labor will get in next federal electional . They will have a clear majority on the floor in the house of reps. The only way the Greens will have some sway is hopefully in the Senate. But I don't see that either tbh.
It a shame because even I have lost all faith in Labor. If it was the UK Labour party then yes it would be a completely different ball game.
Yes I agree it's a great step forward for one minor political party to support pill testing. But this won't be a hung Parliament at the next election.
Wooot! Set times are here for our 2018 Urban Gathering, hope you can all join us for a fantastic day at Ceres. <3
