Post Code Wars

There has always been conflict between two different areas, between countries, between region in countries.But it seems that over the generations it has broken down to even smaller areas with young people fighting with each other just because they come from two different postcodes.

Young actors from Hackney addressed the issue in a play called " The Road " set in a post apocalyptic dystopia. A panel included Ian Levy, who set up the Robert Levy Foundation in memory of his 16 year old son who was murdered in Hackney in 2004. It aims to engage young people in positive activities and help create a better image of the borough.

During the debate a young audience member offered an enlightened if naive solution " why don't we just abolish the post codes ". If only it was that simple.
