September 23 – The Take

Avi Lewis and Naomi Klein’s inspirational documentary shows how, “after Argentina’s economic meltdown in the late 1990s, groups of unpaid and unemployed factory workers decided to take matters into their own hands. Since the amount they were owed in wages roughly corresponded to the value of their employers’ material assets, the workers thought it fair to take control of the factories and resume production without permission. The bosses call it thievery, the factory workers call it expropriation . . .”
The Guardian

Discussions will be led by Bob Cannell, a long-standing advocate of worker co-operatives and member of Suma, one of the largest worker co-operatives in the UK.
