Cannabis Bevrijdingsdag has been organized by the VOC (Union for the abolition of cannabis prohibition) since 2009 to raise awareness about cannabis and hemp and the negative effects of the illegal status of the plant. Please consider a digital donation, however small, to support the VOC and Dutch cannabis activism. The seventh edition of Cannabis Liberation Day / Cannabis Bevrijdingsdag will take place on Sunday, June 14th 2015, in Amsterdam.

De VOC Blog

Welkom bij het VOC, dé koepel van alle organisaties en individuen in Nederland die gekant zijn tegen het verbod op cannabis. Repressie is dure en contraproductieve symboolpolitiek. Wereldwijd vindt het Nederlandse beleid van decriminalisering steeds meer weerklank. Het is tijd voor de volgende stap: cannabis uit de strafwet.
