Wake up Call Initiative - Report

The event was attended by a large young Somalian crowd. A hard-hitting video about stabbings and deaths, produced by a Somalian youngster, was shown.

Various workshops to discuss problems of the Somalian Community were set up. Deliberations were unimaginably intelligent and sophisticated. Mothers were basically worried about their children's education/lack of jobs/falling under the influence of undesirables. However, the youngsters mostly blamed lack of facilities of all kinds.

Local MP Barry Gardiner gave an excellent interactive talk, which was so effective that even those youngsters who originally kept themselves aloof from the proceedings joined in. The meeting ended with a photo session.
