CFAD to Incease Pressure on Drug Dealers

Concerned Families Against Drugs (CFAD) would like to congratulate North Belfast sucide prevention group, PIPS for its recent Action 4 Change rally held on the Bone Hills to highlight the number of young people taking their lives within the community.

As a Ardoyne based anti-drugs group, CFAD share the anger expressed about the growing drug problem which continues to take the lives of our youth. It was noted by CFAD that known Drug Dealers were unbelievably present at the rally,have they no shame?

As a result of the ongoing debate on how to address illegal drugs.
CFAD know the identies of these thugs who prey on vunerable young people. We give Drug Dealers seven days to come forward and make themselves accountable to the community. Those who ignore our call will be refused access to shops, taxis, clubs and other local services. These dealers in death will also witness hundreds of anti-drug activists, picketing their homes until they pack up and leave our community!

Drug Dealers have no place in our society and
CFAD will increase its radical campaign until their anti-community activities stop!

Concerned Families Against Drugs (CFAD) commend political group RNU and West Belfast Priest, Fr. Des Wilson for the seizure and safe disposal of £40,000 of Heroin and Crystal Meth.

The very fact that political activists and community Priests can seize and destroy vast amounts of dangerous drugs proves just how incapable the RUC/PSNI are of tackling the growing drugs culture in working-class Republican communities.

CFAD urge everyone to join together to take control back of our communities and away from those thugs who wish to destroy the very fabric of once proud neighbourhoods!

Last week CFAD gave the North Belfast News the facts and photographs (see post below)concerning the Drug Factory in 21. Brompton Park.....To date the paper has failed to publish these, choosing instead to censor the truth behind why a known thug's Ardoyne house was used to cultivate and store dangerous drugs and poison young people.
Strange behaviour for the 'community orientated' Newspaper wishes to stand over the lies it printed on its front page two weeks ago from Drug Dealer, Seamus Baker. Has the NBN Editor, Maria McCourt a particular political agenda with little objectivity?
It is in the public interest that the NBN must re-interview Baker again, question him his direct involvement in drug dealing and publish his answers in full so the wider community know the truth.....

Drug Dealing Criminal and his Drug Factory Exposed - CFAD

Ardoyne Home Adapted into A Drug Factory
Drugs Evidence Still Evident at 21. Brompton Park, Some Five Days After Factory was Closed-Down by CFAD

Lighting and cultivated Cannabis plants in 21. Brompton Park

Charge Sheets Belonging to the Occupant of 21. Brompton Park, Seamus Baker.

Charged With Burglary, Assault and Disorderly Behaviour, Seamus Baker

On Monday 23rd, November 2010, a group of local residents discovered a drug factory operating in 21. Brompton Park, Ardoyne. They then handed CFAD over a dozen cultivated Cannabis plants and a substantial amount of Cocaine which were photographed before the Cocaine was immediately destroyed. CFAD then took the plants to Holy Cross Monastery for safe disposal.

Given an incorrect story published in the North Belfast News (25/11/10) regarding the Occupant of the above address. Concerned Families Against Drugs pose the following questions to the local Media and other Agencies who had knowledge of this incident:
Question: Were they aware that a drug factory was operating at the above address?
Question: Were they aware that Seamus Baker is on bail for robbing the homes of vunerable members of our community?
Question: Are they aware that he is out on bail for assault?
Question: Are they aware that one week after the discovery of this drug factory, that the PSNI have yet to remove the apparatus and remainder of drugs which remain at this address?
Question: Why has this man not been arrested and charged with cultivating and possessing Class A and Class C drugs?
Question: Why have the above facts not been exposed to the Ardoyne community? Is there a hidden political agenda at play by the local Media and other Agencies?

Another Ardoyne Drug Pusher Closed-Down

Yesterday 23/11/10, Concerned Families Against Drugs was handed a substantial quantity of Cocaine and a dozen or so cultivated Cannabis plants (see photos) by a number of local people in the Ardoyne area. Also taken was other equipment used in the supply of illegal drugs.

CFAD Activist Paddy Larkin, welcomed the move and said the deadly drugs have since been destroyed. He also said the Dealer had been notified by CFAD to close his 'drug factory' immediately and end his immoral involvement in the drugs trade.

CFAD remind all those involved in pushing drugs that their anti-community activities are being closely monitored and we will continue to frustrate and expose these crimes.

Towards the end of October, Concerned Families Against Drugs (CFAD) was contacted by the Republican militant organisation, Oglaigh Na hEireann (O.N.H.) who handed our Activists a large quantity of dangerous drugs which they seized from a West Belfast Drug Baron. The group asked us to not only publically highlight the availability of lethal drugs in working-class areas across Belfast but also destroy the batch thus ensuring that young people wouldn't be poisioned.
Soon after, CFAD contacted the Irish News and asked if the paper wanted the story and photograph one of our Activists destroying the drugs. CFAD subsequently gave a statement to the Irish News Journalists and was photographed destroying the drugs in their presence.
CFAD have now been informed that the Activist photographed faces prosecution for possession of drugs. We view this threat from the PSNI and PPS as nothing more than political policing at its worst. Particularly given the fact that well-known Drug Barons openly live in properties and freely swan about in their flash cars paid for through the proceeds of serious crime.
Since our formation in 2008, the PSNI and so-called Criminal Justice System have failed miserably to tackle the increase in the supply of dangerous drugs onto our streets. CFAD's record speaks for itself and people who live in Nationalist areas of North Belfast know only too well, the positive impact our anti-drugs campaign has had. We will not be threatened by possible hilarious charges from the State and continue to expose anti-community criminals who prey on our youth.
CFAD suggest, that the negative energies of the PSNI and PPS would be better spent questioning their inactivity in seriously combating drugs and related crime in working-class communities across North Belfast.

The Batch of Lethal Drugs

Last weekend, C.F.A.D. was approached by senior members of O.N.H. who asked us to safely dispose of the above drugs. They had seized these dangerous drugs from a West Belfast Drug Baron. The Republican group also wanted our group to publicly highlight the growing scourge of drugs on working-class communities across Belfast.
Concerned Families Against Drugs congratulate O.N.H. for taking this lethal supply of drugs off the streets, thus ensuring that young people in the city won't be poisoned.
C.F.A.D. take this opportunity to remind parents of the sinister activities of Drug Dealers who not only prey on the working-class but who also freely operate right across Belfast. Everyone should remain vigilant because as you can clearly see from the picture above, that cocaine and heroin are readily available in our communities.
We also call upon Politicians to demand more funding instead of cuts and for better resources to tackle drugs, linked suicides and associated criminality. Young people need our collective support to cope with these increased issues. If anyone, young or old needs help and/or advice, please contact P.I.P.S., F.A.S.A. or indeed C.F.A.D.
