This chapter investigates how evicted slum dwellers and their representative organizations advance new forms of environmental subjectivity. The author shows that these forms directly challenge the notion of redevelopment and slum rehabilitation espoused through Mumbai's Slum Redevelopment Authority (SRA) housing scheme. This chapter examines slum redevelopment, especially the political struggles generated by periodic evictions. It provides a sustained account of the political ecology of urban social struggles around essential services and facilities. The poor always have to wrest from the government, their affluent neighbours and the relentless forces of urban commerce that would displace them.
