MMM. IMPORTANT. PLEASE FORWARD IMMEDIATELY. GLOBAL INDYMEDIA. This is the main IndyMedia website, and it gets hundreds of thousands and even millions of hits a month.

MMM Cannabis 2001 is the FEATURED ITEM at the Global Independent Media Center site. This is a big networking opportunity, and I hope cannabis and drug policy organizations and activists take advantage of this.

PLEASE POST YOUR MMM RALLY REPORTS HERE. This is a huge breakthrough and a way to reach many activists of many types worldwide.


===== From TOP section of GLOBAL INDYMEDIA homepage ====

Worldwide Protests against the Drug War on May 5, 2001

The first Saturday in May has become a traditional day to protest the continuing War on Drugs. This war has many aspects, from police brutality

and racist application

of unjust laws

to the destruction of cropland in Colombia

to the recent case of a mother and child

being shot out of the sky, mistaken for drug traffickers.

Everybody wants to know: when will the insanity end? Check back throughout the day for updated coverage of the protests, and please upload your photos, audio, video and stories about the protests near you.
