This article analyses the politics of alliance-building in the Sydney Green Ban Movement. It examines the rights and the authority that was invested in “the people” by green ban activists, and traces the work of political subjectification through which “the people” was constructed. In acting as/for “the people”, green ban activists produced a political subject able to challenge the claims of elected politicians, bureaucrats and developers to represent the interests of the city. It concludes with reflections on the implications of this construction of “the people” for urban politics today
