The famous LA-based gangs – the Bloods and the Crips – put aside their hostility to march peacefully on Friday. It is said that they are now discussing a peace treaty. Peacemaking has continued since then, with large-scale meetings and behind-the-scenes negotiations between the warring groups. As with global diplomacy, there is no world peace between the L.A. gangs, with their long-standing feuds and complex alliances. Peace advocates say that even if few cattle are put to rest for a short time, lives are saved. Within days, many of the city`s gangs were inspired by this peace deal, and the violence between them had almost completely ceased, minus the few who held on, even when the infamous Riots broke out the next day. While the order of events can be very different if we go this far, the context is very similar. Our history is doomed to repeat itself only if we do not work together to end violence as 1.
Some of the gang leaders he tried to engage in the peace efforts were pessimistic, saying their organizations were not structured enough to be on the same side. Less than a week after Nipsey Hussle`s death on March 31, many communities are still recovering from the sudden tragedy. In addition to mourning the artist, activists and entrepreneurs killed, many people are also taking action. A vigil and peace treaty were held yesterday (5 April) by road chiefs specially designed for those linked to ties. A short-term meeting was held in front of The Marathon, Nipsey`s business and the square on Slauson Avenue West in the Crenshaw District. On March 31, this parking lot was where Ermias Davidson Asghedom, 33, was born, was shot three times. Two other men who were standing with him were also shot and hospitalized. The depth of his involvement in Campanella Pirus Park gives him the credibility to commit to peace with young gang members. Throughout the city, black and Latin American bands were inspired by what happened in Watts and forged their own ceasefires.
But the truce was strongest in Watts, among the African-American gangs of residential projects – grape Street and PJ Watts Crips as well as Bounty Hunter and Hacienda Village Bloods. They even used the 1949 ceasefire agreement between Israel and Egypt as a model for a formal written peace agreement in 1994. After two hours of negotiations on a cool, cloudy Saturday in April, they reached an agreement – not exactly on a ceasefire, but on a temporary ceasefire. You came from a peace meeting with some of the most impressive gangs in town: Eight Trays, Hoovers, Rollin`60s, Menlos, Swans, Graveyards. Until recently, it was inconceivable that these gangs were together in the same room. However, the peace deal did not hold and gang violence between the two groups remains a problem in Los Angeles. Sherrills began talking to other Crips, including his brother Daude, and rival Bloods ready to listen – like Twilight Bey, who very publicly shook hands with a crip at a peace summit in 1988. Sherrills and Bey had gone to college together. Not since the pioneering ceasefires of 1992 that followed the devastation of L.A.
