It is very plain for everyone to see that knife and gun crime is out of control in the UK. Everyone involved with the making of Highrise, is truly passionate about spreading a positive message, as well as providing funding, mentoring and opportunities to the younger generations. Members have been directly affected by knife and gun crime; Dennis Alcapone’s stepson was shot dead in Limehouse, London this summer and Lynval Golding (The Specials/Pama Intl) almost lost his life in a very well documented knife attack.
Our aim’s are simple. We need to make our streets safer, better places. We need to understand why this is happening. We need to stop it and we need to rebuild our sense of community for everyone. No one excluded, no one neglected. We need to create brighter futures for all our children. All the charity’s chosen by Pama Intl in this campaign do amazing work, actively give youths opportunities, support and guidance on a daily basis. In addition to to the album’s release, Pama Intl will be taking this vital message on the road. They will performing a series of club shows, as well as matinee performances and workshops for under 18s throughout 2009.
