From resistance fighters in World War II to the modern-day locals who transformed a used ambulance into a safe injection facility, new museum initiatives are memorialising Vesterbro as a site of resistance. - The MURMUR write about Vesterbro - THE REBEL.

Rebels transformed drug policy
Vesterbro's history of civil disobedience doesn't stop with World War II. Almost 70 years after Stjerne Radio's days of resistance, locals defied the authorities again, this time to help the area's drug users.

Michael Lodberg Olsen is the founder of Fixelancen, an old ambulance that was converted into Denmark's first safe injection facility. Brimming with good humour, he's almost like a bearded, fairy godmother to Vesterbro. As we walk around the small pocket of Vesterbro still frequented by sex workers and drug addicts, he never manages more than a few minutes before someone stops to chat.
