Vice News Covers Aboriginal Street Gangs in Winnipeg

Vice News has just aired a very important, in-depth analysis of Aboriginal street gangs in Winnipeg, examining the ways in which the destructive forces of colonialism and racialized poverty are the root causes of Aboriginal street gangs in Winnipeg. It features extensive interviews with gang members, Aboriginal Elders, ex-police officers and Jim Silver, who is co-author of “Indians Wear Red”: Colonialism, Resistance, and Aboriginal Street Gangs.

Needless to say, it is a very important piece of journalism that every Winnipegger, and Canadian, should watch.
