Leaders of the pacifist movement say the mourning that followed Hussle`s death on March 31 made it easier to convince others that the cycle of violence must end. In the most unlikely places for a cause to end violence, for having existed violence, there was something unique and profound; A sacrifice for peace. In a residential project in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles, in the heart of the city, two rival factions laid down their weapons and took a pen and paper to form the Watts Truce. That day, The Grape Street and Fr Jay Crips met the Hunter and Hacienda Blood Sets, supported in part by football legend and anti-gang activist Jim Brown through his American I-Can Foundation. The West Coast Rap All-Stars also played a big role in adjusting the mood to end the violence, with the historical song We`re All in the Same Gang. Within a few days, many gangs inside the city withdrew from the peace agreement, and the violence between them had almost completely ceased, without the few that were there, even when the infamous riots in L.A. broke out the next day. Although the order of events may be very different, as we do now quickly, the context is very similar. Our history is doomed to repeat itself only if we do not work together to end violence as one. The depth of his former participation in Campanella Park Pirus gives him the credibility to commit to peace with the young members of the band. Some of the gang leaders he tried to include in peace efforts were pessimistic and said their organizations were not structured enough to go along the same way. The march takes place 27 years after the Watts Peace Treaty. To deliver the verdict of the 1992 Rodney King trial, gang leaders staged a ceasefire.

NFL Hall Of Famer and social activist Jim Brown was present with figures from the hip-hop community when Crips, Bloods and other gangs gathered in Watts to conclude the street deal. In April 1992, the Crips and Bloods met in the Watts neighborhood of south Los Angeles to negotiate peace. The Grape Street Crips of the Jordan Downs Projects, P Jay Watts Crips of the Imperial Courts Residential Projects, the Bounty Hunter Bloods of the Nickerson Gardens Residential Projects and the Hacienda Bloods Villages have agreed to a ceasefire agreement following the death of Henry Pico, who was shot dead by LAPD officers during a blackout[1] in the Imperial Courts residential project. On 28 April 1992, representatives of these four gangs signed a formal peace treaty on a Masjid in Watts. The treaty was concluded in 1949 on the model of the ceasefire agreements between Israel and Egypt. [2] A few days after the ceasefire, most of the city`s African-American gangs declared themselves at peace despite the relative anarchy caused by the 1992 Los Angeles riots, and there was no major outbreak of violence. The Watts ceasefire is generally seen as a contributor to the downward trend in traffic violence rates in Los Angeles. [3] In 1992, he decided that the violence should end and helped bring together rival Watts band leaders to negotiate a peace treaty between the two sworn enemies. A year later, Bogard was shot dead – some say he struggled to leave gang life, others say he was trying to keep the peace. He knew one thing: that a band peace alone would not return to his Watts neighborhood and the young men who live there. Now that he`s out there and peace is in the air, Kelly is very involved in individual and small group conversations with his own band, as well as in the 1960s. They had just come out of a peace meeting with some of the most powerful gangs in the city – Eight Trays, Hoovers, Rollin`60s, Menlos, Swans, Graveyards.
