» Beyond Zuccotti Park

also today: 6pm @ annie alley (annie/mission st near new montgomery), san francisco. free to the public.

"What was it about Zuccotti Park, and other public spaces around the world, that helps explain its success? And how can we preserve and strengthen such spaces as places of protest? This book, like Zuccotti itself, is a site of vigorous conversation, hard thinking, and bold proposals on such issues."
—Mike Wallace, coauthor of Pulitzer Prize-winning Gotham: A History of New York City to 1898

Beyond Zuccotti Park is an insightful and relevant book that challenges us to think differently about the role of public space for civic engagement. If you believe in the First Amendment’s right to freedom of assembly, then this is the book to read.”
—Mitchell Silver, AICP, President, American Planning Association

There was just a bit of a skirmish in downtown Oakland. Tear gas, arrests, injuries. Our man on the ground @joshharkinson reports that it all started when the Oakland police tackled this woman riding a bike down Broadway. Follow our May Day coverage for the latest.
