Radical Geographies of Protest
“Space Invaders argues for the importance of a radical geographic perspective in enabling us to make sense of protests and social movements around the world. … Whether it be the alter-globalisation mobilisations of the turn of the century, the flurry of Occupy protests, or the current wave of anti-austerity mobilisations taking place, there is a geographical logic to all forms of protest whether that be through transforming landscapes, occupying enemy territory or developing solidarity and communication networks.”
Great to see this, Paul ! Congratulations !

Radical Geographies of Protest
Space Invaders argues for the importance of a radical geographic perspective in enabling us to make sense of protests and social movements around the world. Under conditions of increasing global economic inequalities, we are witnessing the flourishing of grassroots people's movements fighting for improved rights.
Whether it be the alter-globalisation mobilisations of the turn of the century, the flurry of Occupy protests, or the current wave of anti-austerity mobilisations taking place, there is a geographical logic to all forms of protest whether that be through transforming landscapes, occupying enemy territory or developing solidarity and communication networks.
Paul Routledge takes a primarily auto-ethnographical perspective, drawing upon his extensive experience over the past thirty years working with various forms of protest in Europe, Asia and Latin America, to provide an account of how a radical geographical imagination can inform our understanding and the prosecution of protest.
Paul Routledge is Professor of Contentious Politics and Social Change at the School of Geography, University of Leeds and author of Terrains of Resistance (Praeger, 1993) and co-author of Global Justice Networks (MUP, 2009).
‘With vivid examples from his inspiring life as a scholar-activist, Paul Routledge fuses theory, practice, and passion—love and rage—to reveal the nuanced geographical logics of social movements in places from Andhra Pradesh to Zuccotti Park at scales from the body to the globe. A practitioner of ‘situated solidarity,’ Routledge incites and reports on the grounds of radical protests around climate justice, militarism, racialized state violence, infrastructural development, imperial occupation, landlessness, heteronormativity, food sovereignty, and social reproduction. Whether dancing, swarming, rebel clowning, marching, occupying, camping, detourning, caravanning, commoning, or sitting in, the spatial strategies of protest documented here are sure to galvanize social and environmental activists everywhere.’
Cindi Katz, Author of Growing Up Global: Economic Restructuring and Children’s Everyday Lives
