Who are against tourists? Anti-tourism movement strike places where tourism is the most important economy: cities like Venice or Barcelona actually can’t be sustainable without tourism. How important are local people sharing these ideas? Do it is a minority, activists, or a large part of the population? And how should we consider this movement? In order to problematize this topic, the current presentation will try to engage a critial discussion through some questions: Since when there is too much tourists ? What are the reproach against tourism ? Do they are factual? Who are really responsible about that trend and who take the most of tourism industry ? What are the regulations conceivable ? This paper will try to think about this phenomenon as a stake about the legitimacy for tourist to be in a place: maybe are we confronted to a Not In My Front Yard phenomenon. But tourists also get a right to the city.
