In Indonesia, we are now facing a national emergency with regard to drug use, as well as an increasingly punitive war on drugs. This situation has entailed increased police arrests for drug offences and rising use of the death penalty for drug dealers. Prisons are being filled with drug users. People who have the potential to be productive citizens and to pursue a good education can have their entire lives ruined, just because they are arrested for drug offences. Youth RISE Indonesia aims to involve young people who use drugs who, empowered with other members of society, shall realize justice and the fulfillment of their Human Rights.
