Talking about participation means always taking into account economics, capitals and resources. Who can participate? How can citizens afford the time and space resources to participate? We prefer to talk about collective processes of empowerment rather than participation. In order to connect the personal and the social spheres, a different analysis of the relations between the public and the domestic spaces is needed. A new collective realm is emerging based on networks opening and distributing domestic practices within the city. These processes are developed as extitutional informal processes around the home, revealing other forms of urban and citizen assemblages in Madrid. Studies on the organization of urban citizens have not developed a system to explain the different modes and processes as a rhizome movement formed around housing. The purpose of this research is to explain and track how they are formed, how they operate in the city, how the action enables trading and how other non-economic capitals are at stake in this process.

This article investigates the different modes which the creation of citizen networks do not only come from public spaces and squares but also from financial negotiations, banks, housing and bodies. A house is no longer an individual, particular and intimate space. That is the main teaching that the Mortgage Citizens´ platform shows us in Madrid. The PAH (platform for people affected by mortgages), which empowers citizens, as well as all the citizen initiatives around the access to housing, perform another type of urbanism through an extitutional process in Madrid.
