The article explains that “resentment of newcomers is growing” in Portugal as California expats have become the “root of questions over gentrification, income disparities and immigration.”

Portuguese activists have reportedly taken to the streets to protest the gentrification caused by Americans, many of them Californians, who have moved into the neighborhood and caused skyrocketing rent and evictions.

I don’t know what’s worse, having poor people move into the neighborhood, or rich ones.

Just because the value of your home has quadrupled doesn’t make your neighborhood Beverly Hills.

Agreed. But if too many wealthy people move to Lisbon, it ruins it.
