30,000 People Join Anti-Illegal Drugs Rally In Legazpi City With No Media Coverage


A rally against drug abuse in Legazpi City drew 30,000 participants pushing for more aggressive actions against illegal drugs during the observance of the Drug Abuse Awareness and Prevention Week without the coverage of mainstream media outlets.

Legazpi City Mayor Noel Rosal on Wednesday, November 22, expressed gratitude for the huge turnout of participants in this year’s anti-drug rally saying it was the biggest so far in the city’s history.


The mayor said the rally showed that the constituents are ready to fight and crack down on drug addiction in the community and make the city peaceful and free from illegal drugs.

“We are doing this kind of campaign in order to save the lives of the younger generations and not to destroy their future for being a victim of illegal drug, it would also serve as an information tool to the public and make them more aware of the ill effect of this dangerous substance,” said Mayor Rosal.


He said his administration has spearheaded community-based rehabilitation to drug victims as one way of giving them an opportunity to bring their lives back to normal.

Mayor Rosal urged officers and members of the Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Council (BADAC) of the 70 villages of the city to implement the curfew ordinance and conduct regular monitoring of activities involving the youth and minors in their respective areas.


In addition, Barangay leaders and parents were also called to involve the youth in different sports activities to keep them away from illegal drugs.

The Drug and Prevention and Control Week is an annual activity of the city government.
