The Gatherings of “The Workers’ Economy” are encuentros, spaces for collaborative knowledge sharing and debate. They embrace the collaborative participation of workers, activists, cultural promoters, scholars, those involved in socio-political struggle, and anyone interested in social transformation, and is broadly grounded on the economy of self-management by labor. They aim to bring to the fore working-class struggles against capital and as an alternative to the economic and political domination of the global capitalist system.
