Living on the Margins: Undocumented Migrants in a Global City by Alice Bloch and Sonia McKay

"The book offers interesting insight into the everyday life of undocumented migrants without portraying them as helpless victims. Ample quotations from the interviews underline their agency and the complex and contradictory conditions they experience in the ethnic enclaves they are forced to rely on. Bloch and McKay shed light on the circumstances, motivations, and conditions of ethnic enclave employers, who, in most of the literature on undocumented migration, are not a subject of research.

Yunanistan'dan Occupy'a Demokrasinin Yeniden İnşası

Bizi Temsil Edemezler!

Bizi Temsil Edemezler!

David Harvey'in önsözünü yazdığı bu çalışma, Yunanistan, Türkiye, Arjantin ve ABD gibi farklı lokasyonlarda, kitlesel protesto hareketleri nihayetinde demokrasinin ne anlama gelmesi gerektiği sorusunu gündeme getiriyor. Occupy da dâhil olmak üzere bu yatay hareketler, devrimci sosyal değişimin temeli olarak katılımcı demokrasiyi uygulama rolünü üstlenmekte ve bunu talep etmekte.

“The Commune in Venezuela: A Utopian Prefiguration”

In an age in which fears about the future predominate (in the form of dystopias, ecological catastrophes and terrifying Sci-Fi scenarios), utopia is reappearing as the bearer of hope for the fate of humanity. Latin America has historically been a fertile ground where utopian projects, movements and experiments could take root and thrive, and this constitutes one of the region's major contributions to world history.

“Toma de empresas y gestión bajo control obrero en Europa como respuesta a la crisis”

„Poderíamos dizer que este volume trata dos processos de transformação social sob o capital, contra ou a favor dele, das suas transições socioeconômicas no sentido da emancipação da classe trabalhadora quanto do capital, neste quadrante histórico de reversões conexas e complexas. A captura desses três ricos processos se dá em grande estilo, possibilitando ao leitor e alunos uma rica e apaixonante leitura de tão vitais processos.

Challenging capitalism through workers’ control

A common feature in every crisis situation, from the upheavals of the early 20th century to the neo-liberal re-structurings of the late 20th century, is the emergence of workers’ control – workers organising to take over their workplaces in order to defend their jobs and their communities.

Desafiar al capitalismo por medio del control obrero

Una característica común de cada situación de crisis, desde los levantamientos de principios del siglo XX hasta las reestructuraciones neoliberales de finales de ese mismo siglo, es la aparición del control obrero: los obreros se organizan para hacerse cargo de sus lugares de trabajo con el fin de defender sus puestos de trabajo y sus comunidades.
