Abstract

A chapter in a forthcoming book on commons, this paper draws from CB Macpherson's concept of common property as the right to not be excluded in order to make sense of the enduring and heroic struggle in inner-city Vancouver against gentrification-induced displacement.

Keywords: commons, right to not be excluded, gentrification, property, displacement, exclusion, capitalism, liberty
