Questions from a Parallel Universe

Questions to Mr. Costa from the parallel universe of harm reduction -watch our video!

 HCLU was very glad that after we filmed Mr. Antonio-Maria Costa being embarrassed by Dr. Frederick Polak, a Dutch psychiatrist at the Commission on Narcotic Drugs in Vienna, he accepted the invitation of the IHRA to address the international harm reduction conference. We prepared a welcome package to Mr. Costa by offering people the possibility to question him.

As Mr. Paul Hunt said in his speech on Sunday, the UN drug control system seems to operate in a parallel universe: HCLU is committed to initiate a dialouge between these universes for the benefit of both worlds.

Roma travelling by bicycle in Kesznyéten are systematically fined for trivialities and receive disproportionate fines for minor offences. When our film crew visited Kesznyéten, they interviewed non-Roma cyclists as well. Out of these randomly chosen 10 individuals there was only one person who had received a fine for a cycling offence. Even though on average (as seen in the accompanying video), their bicycles were not in better condition or better equipped. Still, the Non-Roma travelling by bicycle are not even stopped by the police.
