Launch of Short Film: Drugs – A Community Struggle!
Ógra Shinn Féin publicly launched a short film 'Drugs - A Community Struggle!' at their youth forum on drugs last Saturday 17 May in the Teacher's Club, Dublin .
The short film outlines the youth movement's NARC (Not Another Ravaged Community) campaign which is working to increase drug and alcohol awareness and tackle the negative effects that they have on our youth and communities.
The film outlines the problems associated with drink and drugs, the underlying reasons behind these problems, and identifies solutions on how we can collectively begin to tackle the drug epidemic.
The republican youth movement have uploaded the film to YouTube and Bebo in order to engage a wider audience.

Barry McColgan, National Organiser of Ógra Shinn Féin said,
"This is the first in a series of short films that we will be producing on the issue of drugs and alcohol abuse. It was necessary to outline the background and objectives of the NARC campaign in this initial film, before we touch on wider issues in future projects."
"We have tried to highlight relevant topics that will spark further debate, and we would encourage as many people to watch and promote it amongst friends and family. Drugs as the title of the film suggests, is a community struggle, and it will only be an empowered and informed people working together that can effectively re-dress this problem."
