The Right to the City
The right to the city is far more than the individual liberty to access urban resources: it is a right to change ourselves by changing the city (David Harvey) Background photo via: http://archandphil.wordpress.com/2011/04/07/a-slice-of-city-pi/

Diritto alla città vs UniBo-Staveco: giovedì 5 giugno @ Hobo occupato - HOBO | The Right to the City | Scoop.it

Free Fare Movement - Brazil: From the right to transport to the right to the city | The Right to the City | Scoop.it

"In this initial post, I want to talk briefly about the connection between the struggle to the right to transport (which is a more specific fight) and the struggle to the right to the city (which is a bigger and generally fight), not only to mobility in cities, but to live and enjoy all what the urban space can offer and how we should be building this space, which only becomes free when it is a space of struggle."

The reproduction of space in a neoliberal divided city: Movements reclaiming the right to the city in re-united Nicosia | The Right to the City | Scoop.it
