County Lines Debate Brings People Together in Interesting Discussion

Following the premiere of ‘Trapping‘, a debate on the film’s theme of county-lines gangs was brought to the Houses of Parliament. Chaired by Labour MP Bell Ribeiro-Addy, the discussion dissected the issue, its many causes, and potential resolutions. The panel included Abra Cadabra (Magic) and producer Femi Oyeniran, who were involved in the film.

Also, sitting on the panel were L’Myah Sherae (CEO of Enact Equality), Ben Lindsay (Founder of Power The Fight), and Amani Simpson (youth coach and campaigner). The discussion brought the worlds of music, film, and politics together providing many different ideas on the issue. Following their own views on county lines, those watching gave questions to the panel who responded.

From the impact of media like ‘Trapping‘ and ‘Top Boy‘ to how people in the community can have an impact, it was certainly an eye-opening affair. It was not only a learning experience, but also an opportunity for people to connect and combat the issue together.

Make sure to watch ‘Trapping‘ on The Drop. Bell Ribeiro-Addy, Abra Cadabra, Femi Oyeniran, L’Myah Sherae, Ben Lindsay, and Amani Simpson are on Instagram. You can read our review of the premiere here.
