2nd Anti-Drugs March

PRESSURE GROUP Stranraer Against Drugs are to hold a second anti-drugs march through the town on Saturday, 25th August.

They want to build on the success of the previous protest which drew a large crowd out onto the streets at the end of March.

This time, organisers hope that it will attract people from all over the district.

As the drug menace continues its spread into even the smallest communities it is hoped that people from outlying towns and villages will join in the protest too.

Speaking to the "Free Press", a spokesman for Stranraer Against Drugs said

"We are confident that there will be an even larger turnout than there was for the last march.
"Some people were not sure what to make of it the last time and they were perhaps afraid of what would happen if they were seen to be standing up to the dealers.
"The last march showed they have nothing to be afraid of as the whole community pulled together.
"And people will be coming in from the country because the drug problem is now reaching the smaller communities as well".

The plan is for a repetition of the previous protest, with marchers gathering at The Breastwork in Stranraer near the old Seacat terminal.
