abstract
In 1999, in response to a marked increase in homelessness in Toronto, inadequate emergency shelters and policies of targeted policing, OCAP organized the occupation of Allan Gardens in Toronto and its designation as a "safe park". The intention with Safe Park was to present the story from the voices of the homeless people and members of OCAP who took part in the occupation.
