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. This is a form of activity based on self-management and 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-organization of work and self-management of the economy.
