Abstract: This article tells the story of Sam and John, two homeless men living in public space around Darwin in the Northern Territory. In August 1996, there were over 105,000 homeless people across Australia. The author examines the human rights of people living in public space. Argues that the criminalisation of sleeping in public places in Darwin and the constant patrolling of public places can be a violation of human rights; considers legal regulation of living in public space.
