This panel engages Paul Routledge's recent book "Space Invaders: Radical Geographies of Protest" published as part of Pluto Press's Radical Geography series. Routledge argues that under conditions of increasing global economic inequalities, we are witnessing the flourishing of grassroots people’s movements fighting for improved livelihoods. Whether it’s the flurry of Occupy protests that peppered the planet a few years ago or the current wave of anti-austerity mobilizations, there is a consistent geographical logic to all forms of protest. He draws upon his extensive experiences 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 of social processes.
