Liberate the Substances Day

This year we celebrate the 80th Bicycle Day on April 19, the day the powerful psychedelic properties of LSD were discovered by Albert Hofmann while he was riding his bicycle home from work. Twenty-five years later LSD and other psychedelic substances were made illegal based on the assumption that any use is merely self-harming and dangerous to others, denying until today that a responsible, life-affirming use of these substances for recreation, sense-making, health and community-building is possible.

We believe that the experiences of countless users show that these substances are not only relatively safe, but also useful for the development of personality, creativity and a general sense of well-being. Recent studies even suggest that they possibly also are powerful tools to treat mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and addiction.

We therefore believe that the responsible use of psychedelic substances that does not endanger third parties is not only possible, but the rule. We also believe that the prohibition of these substances and the prosecution of users is a violation of the right to self-determination and cognitive freedom and therefore demand the destigmatization and decriminalization of all psychedelic substances.

If you agree, come and bicycle with us to demonstrate for cognitive freedom, the right to self-determined alteration of consciousness and against the blanket discrimination of psychedelic substances, plants and mushrooms and their users!
The demonstration starts at 5 pm at Alexanderplatz from where we head together to Brandenburger Tor. In the evening there will be a Talk about LSD and non-authoritarian spaces in a location tba.
