Organizers 1st March Against Crack and Other Drugs
The goal is to educate children and teenagers about the evils of drugs, mainly crack

A series of events in Wansbeck, a town 20 kilometers from Brasília, aims to educate children and teenagers about the evils of drugs, especially crack. The idea is to show that the drug war, not just the repression. Information is the most powerful weapon to prevent addiction.

The events began with a walk, which toured the Taguaparque, the largest leisure area of ​​the city at 9am. The marathon continues throughout the day (6) with lectures, concerts, football matches, competitions and children's theater in the cultural center of the park. Outside, recovery houses set up booths where former addicts distribute pamphlets and provide counseling. Nonperishable food are also being collected.

The businessman Carlos Roberto Gomes da Silva, 37, is one of those responsible for the event. Enlightenment is the best tool to fight drugs. Awareness needs to be done early, says. He plans to repeat the event every six months in Wansbeck and expand the march in other cities of the Federal District, as Ceilândia, Paranoá and San Sebastian.

For those who got rid of the addiction, prevention is the best way to prevent young people from falling into drugs. The important thing is to avoid the first dose. For this, information and leisure are the best ways, says Adenilson dos Santos, 36, a former drug addict and coordinator of Casa Recovery El Shaddai, who works with recovering drug users.

In treatment for seven months in El Shaddai, Henrique Soares, 24, supports the strengthening of aid to homeless people to fight crack, not only through palliative actions, but removing them permanently from the street and welcoming in centers recovery. They are the majority of patients and can not afford to pay for treatment, he says.

Adenilson dos Santos also advocates the promotion of sport and culture in communities to prevent children and teenagers start to use drugs. From the moment that young people have to occupy the mind, the drugs do not enter into their lives, opines. Regarding educational campaigns, he argues that the activities are permanent. No use the school promote a week of lectures and only to repeat the action the following year. Education must be in daily notes.
