It was Once Much Easier to inhabit public space.

Seeing so many Occupiers getting evicted made me think of this short 1988 documentary
by Nancy Kalow on homeless squatter punk teens in the Bay Area (warning
:cringe-inducing rapping in the opening scene). From their stories, it seems as if they had free reign of the abandoned Berkeley Polytech building for a while. Readers of Cometbus
who aren't from the Bay Area can see a bit of the scene he made sound so attractive. 1993 sequel, The Losers Club.
