This article is reproduced from the December 11th 2009 Edition of the Cincinnati Beacon. The reporter, Justin Jeffre had just come down to the city center to cover an Agitprop demonstration at Fountain Square by students from the Miami University Centre for Community Engagement in Over-the-Rhine. They were attempting to raise public awareness about the increasing criminalisation of the poor and homeless in downtown Cincinnati that was being led by the City Council and its development agency the Cincinnati Centre City Development Corporation (3CDC) - an organisation comprising developers financiers, bankers and property speculators. The poor and homeless are being harassed and arrested as part of an ongoing process of displacement and gentrification. Key to this process has been the gradual removal of public toilet facilities in the downtown area that forces the poor and homeless to urinate and defecate in public places - for which they are then arrested. I was there as part of my year's Distinguished Visiting Professorship at Miami University, working with the Centre's Director, Professor Tom Dutton.
