The Right to the City: Social Justice and the Fight for Public Space

Synopsis

"Presented are a series of linked cases that explore the judicial response to public demonstrations by early twentieth-century workers, and comparable legal issues surrounding anti-abortion protests today; the Free Speech Movement and the history of People's Park in Berkeley; and the plight of homeless people facing new laws against their presence in urban streets. The central focus is how political dissent gains meaning and momentum - and is regulated and policed - in the real, physical spaces of the city."
