Report from the “Workers’ Economy” international meeting

Report from the “Workers’ Economy” international meeting, January 31 and February 1, occupied factory of Fralib, Marseille

The occupation of businesses by workers and their democratic management through horizontal decision-making processes is a centuries-old practice, that has however reemerged around the turn of the century – most prominently in Argentina, where currently there are about 300 workplaces “recovered” by about 15.000 workers.

Can this model also constitute a viable solution in Europe, not only to growing unemployment and poverty, but also to the very exploitation and alienation that lie at the core of capitalist production? This was the main question that the first European “Workers’ Economy” international meeting, held on January 31 and February 1 at the occupied factory of Fralib in Marseille tried to address.
