streetism
 n.— «While Circus Ethiopia has sometimes been described as a street-kids circus, Lachance is careful to point out that this is not quite the case. Although the connection to the street is very strong, “you could say that the circus is a preventative measure against streetism,” Lachance says.» —“Circus mania in Ethiopia” by Catherine Bush in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia Globe and Mail (Toronto, Can.) Aug. 6, 1996.
