Neoliberal city building, resistance and eco-city alternative in the world

Neoliberal city-building, or “urban renewal” as it is called here, has become a fundamental dynamic of capitalism. In Brazil, Argentina and around the world, the poor are experiencing a new exile and are being swept further out. The city, the symbolic signifier of concentration and power, has become capitalism itself.

This book not only describes what is happening on the streets of the world, but also discusses, argues and claims alternatives to this.

Can an other democracy be organized through “urban reform” and “new squatters movement”? Isn’t the destruction of the city the destruction of capitalism?
