Detroit's in trouble, that's no secret. But some of the city's residents are taking control back from the government and working on their own to improve the city's conditions.

In Part 3 of its series highlighting these residents, Reason.tv visits Fireweed Universe City, a community of anarchists squatting in a neighborhood of abandoned houses. They also talk with members of a group called Free Detroit, an association of libertarians with a plan to purchase up blocks of the city's discounted real estate to create libertarian enclaves.
