Recent research in the field of urban studies in Chile have highlighted a redefinition of the socio-political field in which urban conflicts take place, a change that favors the articulation of individuals from different social classes. In this paper, I analyze the council “Plebiscito por La Reina” using the theoretical approach of the right to the city. Our research question is: Can the struggle for the modification of the regulatory plan produce a shared vision of the city among the participants of the council? Our hypothesis is that within the council, two different themes that define the moral expectations of the participants (authenticity and dignity) coexist, and that this is a limitation for the possibility of developing a cross-class mobilization.
