The occupations of urban space produce culturally significant practices and incorporate processes of identity construction of the community and the city, where groups try to re-signify the urban space to make it a place of interrelationships. With these considerations, the researcher raises questions beyond civic and cultural issues, raising questions about the relationship between the urban structure and the social dynamics of protests, seeking to identify and understand which are the main public spaces in the political-social history of the city of Lisbon, as well as verifying the reasons why these spaces have become so significant for the constant occurrence of protest demonstrations in them.
