Over the last 12 years, Mexico City has endured significant transformations, which have given rise to constant tension between the need for public works that modernize the urban infrastructure and the needs of the population affected by such works and projects. These changes are part of a broader process of capital’s global expansion under the neoliberal modality. For this reason, urbanization is most often planned against the interests of the local population. By looking at the movement of social resistance against the construction of the West Superhighway through La Malinche, this paper shows how changes in the world’s economic model—and the particularities they produce in a country like Mexico—have taken a toll on both organizational forms and elements of social struggle.
