New Video tests boundaries.
Above: Justice’s new video, directed by Romain-Gavras. Warning: a disturbing short film focusing on the marginalized and disaffected urban youth that have begun to assert themselves in France over the past few years. Here, another recent article in Newswise warning of the impact of globalization on gangs, which are anticipated to spread internationally (as they have nationally).
From the article: “Globalization creates socioeconomic vacuums that are filled by a bewildering mix of gangs, said Hagedorn, UIC associate professor of criminal justice and a Great Cities Institute fellow. A gang can become an ethnic militia, a religious police force, a workforce for a drug cartel, or a death squad hired by the state, and some members become politicians or community organizers. Conversely, former child soldiers sometimes become gang members to survive, he said.”
(A major departure from this older post, even D.A.N.C.E. gets the boot.)
