5th Floor Conference Room

In 2001, Argentina’s economy collapsed. Factories began closing and
foreign banks began pulling their money out of the country, leaving the
poor in shambles. In response, many workers took control over their
factories and once again started to produce, without the boss. The
unemployed movements continued to provide for the unmet needs of their
communities, creating bakeries, small cooperatives, and community
gardens to provide food and jobs. Join us as members of the Recuperated
Factory Workers and Unemployed Worker Movements from Argentina share
their experiences.

A complete list of workshops for the Fall can also be seen here.
Directions to the Schwartz Center are available here.
