Fighting for Space : How A Group of Drug Users Transformed One City's Struggle With AddictionUnknown - 2017
Telling the story of a grassroots group of addicts in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside who waged a political street fight for two decades to transform how the city treats its most marginalised citizens. Over the past 25 years, this group of residents from Canada's poorest neighbourhood organised themselves in response to the growing number of overdose deaths and demanded that addicts be given the same rights as any other citizen; against all odds, they eventually won. But just as their battle came to an end, fentanyl arrived and opioid deaths across North America reached an all-time high.
