The Democratic Alliance, commonly known as DA, is currently the largest opposition political party in South Africa. Scientologists and DA members marched to the Langlaagte police station today carrying banners for the Foundation for a Drug Free World, and to present a letter asking for more action against drug use in South Africa. Langlaagte is an area to the West of central Johannesburg.

Patricia de Lille (below) has been the mayor Cape Town since 2011, and is a leader in the DA party.

“The drug dealers are not the main problem but the demand of these harmful substances by the community.” The Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille and Drug Free World agree that the community need to be educated about what drugs actually do and this will change the market by having individuals better educated about what drugs are so that they can make more informed decisions about their own future.

Maurithus Meiring (below) is the Director of Special Affairs for the Pretoria org, and as such is a senior member of the Office of Special Affairs (OSA).


The Drug Free World Africa Coordinator Mr. Maurithus Meiring said in an interview with SABC “For too long have the communities suffered the hard and cruel effects of substance abuse. What is needed is education so that people know the truth about drugs.” Mr Meiring added that drug dealers and corrupt policeman were not the main source of trouble, the issue is the market which needs to be educated about the destruction drugs cause.

Mr. Meiring said that in 2015 Drug Free World Africa will be training 6,000 anti-drug volunteers in South Africa so that every household and every school in South Africa can be reached, and have asked the community to join hands and work together with Drug Free World to address this issue and train many more anti-drug volunteers.

The community also handed over a Memorandum of Understanding to the Langlaagte Police station with hard words and facts. The Police Department have promised to answer the communities plea against drugs, and to address current drug related issues.

We previously reported Scientology and the Democratic Alliance (DA) joined in an anti-drug march in Johannesburg, South Africa. An article in today’s issue of Johannesburg newspaper The Citizen provides additional photographs and names of some of the participants. Although the photos show the banner for Scientology’s Foundation for a Drug Free World, the participation of Scientology in the march is not mentioned.

Above is Douglas Basil, a DA candidate for the leader of Ward 68 in Johannesburg. Below, Cape Town Mayor Ptricia de Lille (center), and John Moodley (right), a member of the Gauteng Legislature.

Seen speaking below is Mmusi Maimane, Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly of South Africa.

The leaders of the DA are calling for the re-creation of special drug units within the South African Police Service (SAPS). Scientology’s position on this issue is unknown, but entry into South African politics may be dangerous for the organization, particularly if they align against the ruling African National Congress party.

Don't you just hate it when someone takes a long post with photos, quotes it entirely, then adds nothing worthwhile of their own? :biggrin:

This is what the cult does and why it has front groups in the first place. Politicians are always looking for a win-win cause to back to further their own agenda and career. Who could say no a DRUG FREE WORLD!??? It's so simplistic and stupid its no wonder clueless, lazy politicians regularly join these type retarded things. Someone points out it's a Scientology front group and their tune usually changes quickly.

YOUTH FOR HUMAN RIGHTS! I mean who could be against young people supporting "human" rights -wtf ever that means.

Scientology should also start the "MURDER IS BAD" and "END RAPE NOW" PR front groups.

Not that the cult cares one damn bit about any of the problems their front groups claim to tackle, but it makes for pretty photo ops for DM's boring speeches and its the only way they can trick most politicians, members of the public, civic groups, etc... to touch scientology with a 100 foot pole.
