Description : Abstract
Marcus Jones reports that a group of Mission Hill residents led by Graylan Ellis-Hagler (Church of the United Community) and Hattie Dudley (Mission Hill resident) have been picketing the offices of the AIDS Brigade to protest the AIDS Brigade's clean needle-exchange program. Jones' report includes footage of Ellis-Hagler and Dudley with the picketers. Jones interviews Ellis-Hagler and Dudley. Ellis-Hagler says that the needle-exchange program would not be tolerated in any other neighborhood in Boston. Dudley says that the program will lead to an increase in drug traffic in the Mission Hill neighborhood. Dudley and Ellis-Hagler both advocate treatment programs over needle-exchange programs. Jones notes that recovering drug addicts have daily meetings at Ellis-Hagler's Church of the United Community. Jones' report includes footage of people gathered at the Church of the United Community. A woman makes protest signs at the church. Jones interviews Anthony Brown (former drug addict) about the need for more treatment programs. This tape contains additional footage of the Mission Hill protesters.
