Benefit for the Mono Park 2 at Bound Together Book Store
8pm Sat. Sept. 19th
Modesto Needle Exchange was started in Mono Park in early 2009 in an effort to offer clean syringes to injection drug users and also provide the safe and legal disposal of dirty ones with an overall goal of reducing rates of infectious disease and prevent unsafe disposal of used syringes in Stanislaus County. This area of the Central Valley is plagued by extremely high rates of Hepatitis C and HIV/AIDS cases directly related to injection drug use, nationally recognized high rates of methamphetamine use, and the ongoing sharing and unsafe and illegal disposal of used syringes.
Repression by Stanislaus County Sheriffs whipped together a sting, wire tapped, and surveillance operation to have the self-organized Needle Exchange shut down and now two volunteers w/ the Exchange face court battles and punishment for trying to help stop the spread of Hep.C/HIV in their local community.
The two charged in the case invites you out to hear the story and how you can help.
