The right to the city concept has recently attracted a great deal of attention from radical theorists and grassroots activists of urban justice, who have embraced the notion as a means to analyze and challenge neoliberal urbanism. The article analyzes such projects by reframing the right to the city concept to foreground its roots in Marxian labor theory of value. It argues that Lefebvre's formulation of the right to the city is invaluable for analyzing and delineating contradictory urban politics that are pulled into the vortex of the right to the city. The article concludes with a theoretical proposition that aims to open up space for further critical debate on the right to the city
