This book chapter discusses street vendors struggles for public space in Caracas, Venezuela. Street vendors‟ organisations are discussed more briefly as part of the study. The street vendors organisations in Caracas have negotiated with the Municipal Office over rights to trade in the street. They have also tried to get more media attention to the situation of the street vendors. More recently the municipal authorities have created space for coordinators acting as a link between the street vendors, vendors‟ organisations, and the authorities.
