news before, but I seem to recall a refutation that it was just
J.C. Decaux exaggerating things to try to change the terms of
their contract. This article quotes a sociologist who claims
that it is instead a class-based conflict.

Bicing program in Barcelona, that it was taking parking space
and facilities away from people using their own (non-sponsored)
bicycles. I haven't found any media coverage of that viewpoint,
though (at least not in English).
