Poder Obrero. Autogestión y control obrero desde La Comuna hasta el presente

Desde los albores de la era industrial, la mejor y casi única arma de lxs trabajadorxs en la defensa de sus intereses ha sido la acción colectiva. Gracias a ella, a lo largo del último siglo y medio y en prácticamente toda la geografía del planeta se han repetido experiencias de ocupación de fábricas, constitución de consejos obreros y democratización de los centros de trabajo.

La Venezuela del pueblo. Control obrero, cooperativas y comunas.

Los análisis sobre Venezuela se suelen concentrar en las políticas de gobierno y –hasta el 2013 – en la igura de Chávez. Hasta la mayoría de los autores que apoyan el proceso bolivariano han prestado poca atención a la construcción popular desde abajo. En este artículo se analizan la dinámica del movimiento para el control obrero, las cooperativas y su conexión con las Comunas como forma avanzada de autogobierno local.

An outline

ALBA – an alternative regional alliance?

Various regional integration initiatives have emerged as a counterpoint to the advance of globalisation. The Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA) is of interest from the perspective of the European left, because cooperation and integration take a very different shape in ALBA from other regional alliances. The three basic principles of ALBA are complementarity, solidarity and cooperation.  That in itself is a marked difference from the European Union (EU) with its four fundamental freedoms (the free movement of people, goods, services and capital).

"21st century socialism? Venezuela’s solidarity, social, popular and communal economy"

With capitalism in crisis - rising inequality, unsustainable resource depletion and climate change all demanding a new economic model - the Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) has been suggested as an alternative.

What can activists in both the global North and South learn from each other?

Labour as a Commons: The Example of Worker-Recuperated Companies

This article argues that labour can be understood as a commons, located in the discussion of how commons can advance the transformation of social relations and society. To manage labour as a commons entails a shift away from the perception of labour power as the object of capital’s value practices, towards a notion of labour power as a collectively and sustainably managed resource for the benefit of society.

Workers’ Control and Workers’ Councils

Class Struggle in the Bolivarian Process

Workers’ initiatives and government measures in Venezuela to increase workers’ participation in the management of their companies sharply contrast with institutional actions that intend to inhibit and reduce such participation. Despite this, the movement for workers’ control in Venezuela has grown in recent years and achieved some important victories in conflicts in state companies.

Jak pracownicy przejmują kontrolę w dobie kryzysu kapitalizmu

W lutym 2016 roku kilkunastu byłych pracowników zakładu obróbki drewna w niewielkiej greckiej miejscowości Patrida, około 60 kilometrów od Salonik, powiedziało „Dość!”. Od 2008 roku byli oszukiwani przez właścicieli. Obiecując rychłą wypłatę, szefowie nie wypłacali pracownikom pełnej pensji, zredukowali godziny pracy i ogłosili upadłość firmy – nie informując o tym oficjalnie. Sytuacja nie poprawiła się, a pracownicy nigdy nie ujrzeli swoich pieniędzy. W grudniu 2015 roku zakład został zamknięty.
