Lisbon voices for the right to the city

How are the citizens of Lisbon confronting this attacks to their city? Are they managing to develop practices of transnational solidarity? What is the invisible city of Lisbon? Our new Talk Real episode is out now.

Neoliberalism is shaping cities as places for tourism, gentrifying and dismantling the cooperative environment of the neighborhoods. Activists in Lisbon talked to us about the importance of intersectional approaches to the Right to the City, social polarization in Lisbon and transnational strategies and local daily practices of resistance.
