DA supports anti-gang and drug initiative

By Edmund van Vuuren MPL, DA Constituency Leader – Northern Areas:

The Democratic Alliance (DA) in the Northern Areas is proud to show its solidarity to the United Communities Advancement Initiative (UCAI) who’s mission is to create safer communities.

The Hands Off initiative is an anti-gang and drug protest taking place this Saturday, 13 June 2015 in Stanford Road.

I will be in attendance joined by 15 DA councillors as we line the street together with concerned citizens.

This will be followed by a memorandum handover to Nelson Mandela Bay municipal officials by the UCAI.

True freedom centres on the right to live and move around your neighbourhood without fear. It means freedom from gangs and freedom from drugs.

The DA will continue to fight for safer communities by eradicating gangs and drug abuse that rob people of their freedom and deny them opportunities.
