The struggle for urban and communication rights in Brazil: Lessons from the “Occupy Estelita” movement in Recife

A lecture by Ivan Moraes Filho, director of the human rights organization Luiz Freire Cultural Center and graduate student at the Federal University of Pernambuco

#ocupeestelita or Occupy Estelita is a social movement that emerged in 2012 to oppose reckless urban growth in Recife, Northeastern Brazil. The movement opposes the plan to build twelve 40-story buildings in a historic downtown area in disregard of city regulations. Gathering a variety of civil society organizations and activists, #ocupeestelita was able to generate public debates and demands about political, media and urban reforms.
