USA. 'Cuomo Lied, People Died': Advocates Block Governor's Office Over Delay In Safe Injection Sites

Dozens of harm reduction advocates blocked the entrances to Governor Andrew Cuomo's Midtown office on Wednesday, as they called on him to approve a city plan that would open four overdose prevention centers for New Yorkers to safely inject drugs.

The one-year pilot program, which was announced by Mayor Bill de Blasio in May of 2018, was expected to create the country's first supervised injections sites (SIFs). (The Gothamist, USA, 28.08.2019)
