Cannabis Liberation Day calls for tolerance and widespread use of hemp as a durable resource and challenges the criminalization of the plant, the cannabis consumers, coffeeshops and cultivators.
Since 1999, in the first week of May protests and festivals are organised worldwide in support of legalizing cannabis, under the name Global Marijuana March. Because there were none of these activities in Holland, in 2009 VOC decided to organise Cannabis Liberation Day.
Cannabis Liberation Day will again be held at Flevopark, the greenest park of Amsterdam. The park is easily accessible by public transportation and parking your car is free at the adjacent Science Park. Please treat the park with respect, use the bins and toilets and stay on the grass and pathways.
