COCA PROHIBITION A MISERABLE FAILURE: END IT

By Emma Bonino Efforts to eradicate coca production through ''supply reduction'' and ''alternative development'' have failed miserably, writes Emma Bonino, member of the European Parliament and founding member of the International Anti-Prohibitionist League. The situation in the Andes has become unbearable for local communities, threatening the general development of their countries while providing a source of easy and big money for all sorts of illegal groups, from the narcos to terrorist and paramilitary networks. Comprehensive alternative development projects should address the broader economic situation of farmers, who cultivate ''drug crops'' not only because of to ''rural poverty'', ''lack of access to markets for legal products'', and ''unsuitable soil for many other crops'' as the UN claims, but also because the plants are an integral part of the cultures, traditions, and religions of the indigenous peoples living in those regions. The Permanent Forum should look into the possibility of reflecting coca-related issues in its annual report, where it issues recommendations to the ECOSOC. Ending the prohibition on coca should become a priority for all those that genuinely struggle for freedom and human rights and that are working towards the establishment of a system that functions on the force of law and not the law of force, a law that does not prohibit, but facilitates, the cohabitation of peaceful peculiarities including, ultimately, indigenous issues.
