Urgent Call for Support: Help Us Defend Jeremy and Eris

Dear Supporters,
 

We hope this message finds you well. As dedicated members of the Drug User Liberation Front (DULF) community, your unwavering support has been instrumental in our fight for justice, harm reduction, and the rights of drug users. Today, we face a critical juncture that requires your immediate attention and assistance.

 

On May 31, 2024, DULF’s co-founders, Eris Nyx and Jeremy Kalicum, were each charged with three counts of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking under Section 5(2) of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA). Each charge carries a maximum sentence of life in prison and could result in a mandatory minimum of 1-2 years in jail if the Crown alleges (and ultimately proves) the presence of certain aggravating factors. 

These charges are not just an attack on Eris and Jeremy but an assault on our collective mission to advocate for an end to the ongoing public health crisis in British Columbia, safe and regulated access to substances, and the reduction of drug-related harm. Further, we firmly believe that Eris and Jeremy’s Charter rights under section 7 to life, liberty, and security of the person have been violated in a manner that contravenes the principles of fundamental justice.

Consequently, DULF will be bringing a constitutional challenge to section 5(2) of the CDSA in its application to the compassion club in addition to defending against the aforementioned criminal charges.

Ultimately, defending this case and pursuing our constitutional challenge requires substantial financial resources. To this end, we aim to raise $150,000 to cover the legal fees and related expenses necessary to mount a robust defense. This is where we need your help.

Your support can make a significant difference in the outcome of this case. Here’s how you can contribute:
 

  1. Donate: Any amount you can give will bring us closer to our goal. Contributions can be made to:

  2. Spread the Word: Share our fundraising campaign with your network. Raising awareness is crucial.
     

  3. Host Fundraising Events: Consider organizing local events or virtual fundraisers to support our cause.
     

We understand that not everyone can contribute financially, but your voice and advocacy are equally important. By standing together, we can challenge the injustices within our legal system and fight for a more compassionate and rational approach to drug policy.
 

Jeremy and Eris have been unwavering in their commitment to our cause. Now, they need us to stand with them. Let us demonstrate the strength and solidarity of our community by ensuring they have the best possible defense.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication. Together, we can make a difference.
 

In solidarity,

The Drug User Liberation Front (DULF)
