Freegans

freegan

I was just reminded of an article in the New York Times a few years ago that focused on ‘Freegans’. It seems particularly fitting for our discussion here… In short, it is a network of squatters in the NE that find vacant houses and live under the radar.

“One visitor I met was a former drug addict who had tried to kill himself more than once; another was an anemic-looking young woman who had been living under a bridge for four months. The majority, however, seemed to be iconoclastic young people from middle-class backgrounds living some version of the freegan dream.”

and how is it that this image was included in the article??
