This relates to increase in anti-homeless laws sweeping the nation (including Austin) based on TMP rulings.

The book, The Right to the City by Don Mitchell, a required text of GRG 396 American Space and Place, a graduate-level geography course offered this Fall, documents this trend.

Note that Food not Bombs has an active Austin chapter, and it is one of the groups listed as being on the FBI Central Texas' "terrorist watch list" - in a controversial FBI presentation to a UT Law class last Spring. For details, visit
