“No Respect” (Youth Culture – Anti-Social Behaviour) by Laura Walsh

“No Respect” (Youth Culture – Anti-Social Behaviour) by Laura Walsh

A milder version of the original “No Respect” yet it is still a powerful and entertaining piece about youth culture in today’s society, focusing on anti social behaviour and offering an alternative path to a life of crime and deprivation.

This poem was written and performed by Laura Walsh (http://www.artreach.net), for a class of young people. It was later performed live on The Billy Butler Show BBC Radio Merseyside, as the resident poet on the Friday afternoon show.

This video contains images and content of anti social behaviour and has been instrumental in the battle to combat crime and anti-social behaviour used as a tool by the Police, Fire, schools and numerous other organisations throughout the UK and Europe.
