This study discusses the formation of territoriality of social movements, from the concrete experience in Chile of the pobladores’s movement. Until the establishment of the military regime in this country, the pobladores developed a model of self-government in their districts. From the 1973 coup, state and housing market began to regulate these territories. With the analysis of this historical example, it was sought to extend the concept of territory for geography including social movement as subject of production of space. At the same time, it was avoided to make an analysis that separates the movements of their context, not taking into account the limits that the processes at larger scales impose on the struggle of social movements. To build this theoretical review of the territory‟s concept, was analyzed the territorial characteristics of two steps of the pobladores’s movement, the embryonic experience of self-government (1967-73) and its decline from the success of the neoliberal project in Chile. It was found that the social movement can be the "architect" of your own neighborhood, so it is necessary to rethink the concept of territory, considering the social movement as an active subject of its construction.
