Euromediterranean “Workers’ Economy” meeting (Thessaloniki)

October 28, 2016 to October 30, 2016 All Day

occupied Viome factory Thessaloniki

The Euromediterranean “Workers’ Economy” meeting which will take place οn 28, 29 and 30 October at the occupied Viome factory in Thessaloniki, Greece. It is an important international event that will bring together activists, workers and researchers. The three-day meeting will include presentations, workshops, open discussions, assemblies, solidarity fair, video projections, food and cultural activities. 

From Argentina and Brazil to Turkey and Kurdistan, despite any cultural and social differences, occupied factories and work collectives represent an act of resistance against the depreciation of labour power and the destruction of productive structures, a response to unemployment and marginalisation; at the same time they help flesh out a proposal for the construction of a different economy, alternative to the capitalist mode: a workers’ economy.

A “workers’ economy” is a form of activity based on self-management that aims to defend the interests of those who live off their work. Such experiences may include recuperated factories, worker cooperatives, solidarity clinics, forms of collaborative economy and other struggles for self-organisation of work and self-management of the economy.

We have confirmed the participation of workers from Argentinian factory takeovers, of Mexican teachers promoting educational self-management, of promoters of communal economy from Venezuela, as well as of workers and activists from Italy, Croatia, Serbia, France, Turkey, Bosnia, Greece, Spain, Germany, Poland and more!
