The past year has witnessed a wave of global civil unrest in which demonstrators have used their bodies to physically block or impede the flow of traffic and capital in city streets and public squares. At the risk of harm, imprisonment, or death, people have disturbed the organizing conditions of urban public life through a collective celebration of defiance. Some of these disruptions have produced a space for creative actions within the public sphere, making a claim about democracy drastically different from the guarantees upheld by traditional liberal constitutions.
