Solidarity march against drug abuse danger


20-June-2009

Staff from government ministries, other organisations and the general public are invited to join the march to mark International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.

The event is being organised by the Campaign for Awareness, Resilience and Education against substance abuse (Care) under the theme Koste Seselwa Kont Labi ek Trafik Drog.  Care says the main aim of the march is to bring the nation together against one of the most serious scourges “threatening the very fabric of our families and our small nation”.

The march will start at 3pm at Freedom Square. The route will then be: Manglier Road, 5th June Avenue, Unity Monument roundabout, Francis Rachel Street, Clock Tower, Independence Avenue, 5th June Avenue, Manglier Street and back to Freedom Square.

It will last about 30minutes and, to launch it, there will be a short ceremony with words from prominent leaders and songs helping to form a solidarity chain.

Organisations are encouraged to bring, if possible, at least one banner and/or small boards with anti-drug messages or around the theme Koste Seselwa Kont Labi ek Trafik Drog.

Care aims to use the event as a national awakening to the threats of drug use and trafficking and a call for mobilisation of action against the evil.
