Pretoria North residents will take to the streets to protest against the proliferation of drugs in the area.

Carina Bam, of the North crisis centre, requested participants to wear black T-shirts during the march on Saturday, 24 June for a drug free community.

“Come show your support in our fight against drugs. Bring along posters or banners and wear your black T-shirt,” she said.

Bam said the campaign was born out of a need to create awareness in the community about the dangers of drugs, and to get people to actively fight against and stop the distribution of illegal drugs.

“Death caused by drug abuse destroys families, and unborn children whose parents do drugs suffer.”

Marchers will meet at the Pretoria North police station (325 Ben Viljoen Street) at 08:30.

“We will march for about 2km,” said Bam.

Last week residents of Akasia held a successful march against drug abuse and violence against women and children.
