Restrictions on the everyday use of public space; restrictions on access to public buildings; restrictions on political expression and assembly for political purposes; restrictions on the freedom of immigrants to use public facilities and services in the city; increased segregation, exclusion, and concentrated decentralization of residences and economic activities are all key examples of the way the false threat of terrorism has been used to restrict rights to the city.
