    • Abstract:
      At the heart of this article is an investigation of the reciprocal relationship between the city of Luanda and one of its informal neighbourhoods, Chicala. The study situates Chicala among conflicts that have arisen in its urban densification process. It aims to understand the‘slow’ and ‘small’ practices of protest acting in and around the case. These practices help to complexify the discourse on the city, bringing the local dwellers closer to the rest of the population – everyone reacts to change. Actions of protest are in themselves an expression of citizenship, they present alternative visions for Luanda’s future development. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
