No Más Mulas / No More Mules – a campaign that warns vulnerable people at risk of becoming drug mules
No Más Mulas – our Spanish-language campaign in Latin America
Hong Kong has extremely long and punitive prison sentences for drug trafficking. Our campaign warns vulnerable people at risk of becoming drug mules by sharing prisoners’ stories online and campaigning at the source. We help to spread the message and increase awareness within the communities most targeted by drug traffickers in Latin America.
No More Mules is our campaign for the rest of the world, in particular Africa.
The same as No Más Mulas, our campaign’s mission is to raise awareness of the risks of trafficking drugs to Hong Kong with its extremely long and punitive prison sentences.
We also share prisoners’ stories and campaigning at the source, we help to spread the message and inspire change within the communities most targeted by drug traffickers in Africa and Asia.
How it started
The campaign emerged in 2013 when Father John Wotherspoon, an Australian Prison Chaplain, started to notice the alarming number of foreigners coming to Hong Kong recruited as drug mules. That’s when he got the idea of publishing letters from prisoners sharing their experiences and warning others of the risks of drug trafficking in Hong Kong.
By participating in our campaign, defendants may be considered eligible for small reductions to their sentences.
Since the launch of our anti-drug trafficking campaign, Father John has traveled extensively in Africa, Latin America, and Asia, meeting the families of prisoners and members of the press, TV and radio. The number of drug mules entering Hong Kong from Africa and South America is now showing a downward trend.
