September 23, 7pm – “The Take”
Directed by Avi Lewis & Naomi Klein | Running time: 57 min
This documentary tells the story of thirty employees who – in the wake of Argentina’s dramatic economic collapse in 2001 – walk into their factory, roll out sleeping mats, and refuse to leave. They’re part of a daring new movement of workers who are occupying bankrupt businesses and creating jobs in the ruins of the failed system. But their success is far from secure. Like every workplace occupation, they have to run the gauntlet of courts, cops and politicians who can either give their project legal protection or violently evict them from the factory.
Followed by a discussion with Mary Sutton, and Kayla Al-Shamma Jones
