Insite - Not Just Injecting, But Connecting

Creator: Hungarian Civil Liberties Union (HCLU)

Description: HCLU's video advocacy group traveled to Vancouver to for a visit to Insite, the only legally operating injecting facility in North-America. When we arrived to Hastings Street, Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, where Insite is located, the magnitude of the street drug situation was immediately evident. Hundreds of marginalized people are virtually homeless, due in part to the worsening conditions of cheap and crowded group homes. Most people come from other parts of Canada, where the climate is colder and there are no services like Insite.
