TOM HAYDEN
on STREET WARS: GANGS & THE FUTURE OF VIOLENCE. Though never officially acknowledged, over 25,000 young people have died in America\'s gang wars since 1980. In cities across America, members of the Crips, Bloods, Mara Salvatrucha, 18th Street, Latin Kings, Blackstone Rangers, and Gangster Disciples are like traumatized war veterans with no way home. STREET WARS is Tom Hayden\'s searing indictment of the neo-conservative politics of law and order that dominates current policy and suffocates inner city youth. Weaving together cutting analysis with numerous first-hand stories from gang leaders, Hayden shows how the prison-industrial complex reinforces gang identity through humiliation and punishment, and reveals how globalization has created a force of unemployable men and women around the world who are defined as incorrigible, outside law and community. Hayden concludes by advocating an internal peace process to address the devastation of America\'s urban youth. Tom Hayden has been a human rights activist, community organizer, and public thinker since the 1960s. A California state senator for eighteen years, he is also the author of Irish on the Inside and Reunion. 7:30 PM at Telegraph Avenue
