Introductory speech by the President Daniel Gibbes: Presentation of the film CLSPD / Soualiga Jeunesse

(To be adjusted according to present)
-Madame, the prefect, delegate to the communities of Saint-Martin and Saint-Barthélemy,
-Members of the Vice-Presidents and Territorial Advisers,
"The representative of the prosecution,
- Mr. President of the association Youth Soualiga,
-Members and representatives of partner associations,
- Ladies and gentlemen in your grades and qualities,

Good evening everyone,
After a long period of gestation and thanks to the hard work of our partners, we are gathered at the Cultural Center of Saint-Martin - a symbolic place of youth and culture - to present the short film entitled "Le Choix Of a lifetime ".
This film was born of the collective commitments for prevention against violence, taken within the Local Council for Security and Prevention of Crime - the CLSPD.
It was conceived and written by the members of the association Youth Soualiga to whom the CLSPD has entrusted this project.
We are therefore pleased to present it to you this evening, because this short film is now a concrete tool in our hands that will enable us to sensitize the young people of this territory by exchanging directly with them and passing them a clear message on the risks Of delinquency.
In this regard, I welcome the involvement of the association Jeunesse Soualiga, through its president Jean-Marc Gervais, in which the members of the CLSPD have placed their trust in the realization of this preventive film.
I would add that the audiovisual cell of the community contributed to the film by the technical means of our institution. This very natural participation also testifies to the broad spectrum of audiovisual communication which has the merit of being very direct to address the younger generation.
Chers amis,
The first actions of the CLSPD are beginning to bear fruit. We can be proud of this awareness-raising campaign on gun violence, which is a real scourge of our modern societies and which is the central theme of this short film.
I recall that the actions that have been defined in the CLSPD strategy are organized around three main themes:
-The prevention of recidivism
- Preventing violence and helping victims
-Securing safe areas for public safety

The prevention campaign will begin in September in the very neighborhoods where this event will be broadcast.
This action will also be relayed through our institutional partners, and through a media campaign.
Allow me at this moment to greet the accompaniment of the media, which help us to promote our actions, and which are a valuable relay to the population in this field.
The association Jeunesse Soualiga has the mission to meet young people in schools, to make prevention in the neighborhoods to discuss the risks of the use of arms, and also to make parents aware of their educational role.

As the president of the community, I can only encourage parents to become involved in education, to pass on to their children the fundamental values ​​that will enable them to become serene and responsible adults.

This film will make its pedagogical path through our partners: National Education, Teen House, Service Clubs and District Councils, which will help carry the message, with the support of the Gendarmerie, the territorial police, and Field associations.
I thank them all on behalf of the community.
It is a very encouraging initiative, so thank you to the members of the CLSPD, the representatives of the state, the public prosecutor, and of course the community services, Hénoc Patrick and Jocelyn Jermin of CLSPD, for the work accomplished .
It is time to discover this short film. I see that there are many young people in the room, and I am very happy to be very attentive to the message that Youth Soualiga transmits to us through "The Choice of a Life", a very revealing title.
Good projection, and thank you for your attention.
