Summary of the #ActOnTobacco week of action
After a successful week of social media campaigning to draw attention to the global harm caused by tobacco, we are now wrapping up our Week of Action. We’ve had over 1,600 views of our Medium articles, and close to 70,000 impressions on Twitter. Together we sharpened the focus on the injustices committed by the tobacco industry, like child labour, deforestation, marketing and children, and the disproportionate economic strain on Low and Middle Income Countries.
We would like to extend our thanks to the following participating organisations:
Cut Films, St Helen’s Stop Smoking, Unfairtobacco, African Tobacco Control Alliance, The Union’s Department of Tobacco Control, Kick Butts Day, Uniting Care ReGen, Tobacco Action, International Doctors for Healthier Drug Policies, Tobacco Free Australia, Queensland University of Technology Law, Praevent Tabacum, Solutions4Health, Smokefreelife Oxfordshire, European Respiratory Society, Tobacco Free Finland, Action on Smoking and Health USA, Public Health at Stoke-on-Trent, Mtoto News, Tobacco Control Research Group University of Bath, Breathe 2025, Farm Labour Organizing Committee, Vital Strategies, Healthy Routes Wigan Borough, Cancer Focus Norther Ireland, and our ASH partners in Wales and Scotland.
Though our week is ending, we encourage all to continue to #ActOnTobacco to end the harm caused by tobacco. Follow us on Twitter to stay up to date with the latest tobacco news and to carry this conversation forward.
