This battle to enter the city well, is not similar to the classic urban processes of land seizures, with which illegality is usually studied in our cities, which are also characterized by being unstable and abandoned and having multiple problems. The Los Pinos Community Development Committee (CDCLP), whose study we are addressing in this paper, is not a pro-ile-galidad initiative. On the contrary, it is a social enterprise that created a strategy of solution around the socio-economic virtues and the institutional or multilateral supports that were activated progressively, according to the economic value of the "solidarity", to achieve its regularization. It is a history of popular struggle, mainly of women, for the defense and recovery of the urban and solidary public economy, and that is oriented to daily action and active commitment in the search for solutions that defend the popular demands for housing, work, production and services of impoverished communities, of the perverse processes of privatization and auto-ritarianism -of private traffickers and promoters- and of sexism and patriarchalism -present in the state entities and within the Committee itself.
