A Workers' Cooperative

Appropriation or stealing?

In suburban Buenos Aires, thirty unemployed auto-workers walk back into their idle factory, roll out sleeping mats and refuse to leave.

Armed only with slingshots and an abiding faith in shop-floor democracy, the workers face off against the bosses, the bankers and a whole system that sees their beloved factories as nothing more than scrap metal for sale.


All they want is to re-start the silent machines. But this simple act - the take - has the power to turn the globalisation debate on its head.
