Title variants
Languages of publication
The article explores urban social movements. It is the city that sets out stimulating strategies for building a social movement and forms of its activities and protest. The article is based on ethnographic studies conducted among activists from movements opposing neoliberalism, anti-corporate movements and the alter-globalist movement. Urban activities and protest tactics are treated as an emanation of their chief ideologies and means of articulating fundamental political postulates.
