Control Obrero

Esta semana recuperamos una entrevista de archivo, realizada hará cosa de un año en Berlín, al compañero Darío Azzellini, sociólogo y documentalista del control obrero, la autogestión y los consejos comunales -especialmente en América Latina.

"La democracia no puede ser democracia si es cosmopolita", dice este experimentado investigador y viejo militante. Efectivamente, y dado que no existen dos comunidades idénticas, los procedimientos de organización y de acción colectivas han de ser diferentes.

Workers Control From the Commune to the Present

Ours To Master and To Own

Ours To Master and To Own

From the dawning of the industrial epoch, wage earners have organized themselves into unions, fought bitter strikes, and gone so far as to challenge the very premises of the sytem by creating institutions of democratic self-management aimed at controlling production without bosses. With specific examples drawn from every corner of the globe and every period of modern history, this pathbreaking volume comprehensively traces this often underappreciated historical tradition.

einer Krise der Repräsentation und teilen die Kritik – ob in autoritären

Ekonomi Politik: Güngel Tarih: İşçi konsyleri, Kooperatifler, işgaller

O yeşil ağacın söyledikleri, Dario Azzellini ile Röportaj

Geçem sayıda Arjantin´e uzanmış, işgal fabrikalarının esinlendirici öyküsünü  aktarmıştık. Şimdi, önce 1840'lardan günümüze işçi konseyleri ve işçi özyönetimlerine gidiyoruz, ardından günümüz işgal fabrikalarındaki son duruma bakıyoruz. Yıllardır fabrika işgallerini, işçi konseylerini belgeleyen. Emekçi Ekonomisi toplantılarıyla özyönetim fabrikalarını irtibatlandıran ekipten siyaset bilimci Dario Azzellini´ye mikrofonumuzu uzatıyoruz. O anlattıkça, "teorinin ağacı gridir, pratiğin ağacı ise yeşildir" sözü kulağımızda yankılanıyor.

 

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.

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.

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.

Recent years have seen a proliferation of recuperated workplaces around the globe, laying the foundations for a truly democratic workers’ economy.

Workers’ Control in the Crisis of Capitalism

 In February 2016, a dozen former workers of a small woodworks plant in the small Greek town of Patrida, some 60 kilometers from Thessaloniki, had had enough. Since 2008 they had been tricked by the owners. With a promise to pay back everything soon, the bosses did not pay the workers their full salary anymore, reduced working hours and announced bankruptcy without making it official. But the situation never improved and the workers never saw their money. Finally, in December 2015, the plant closed.

"La democracia no puede ser democracia si es cosmopolita"

NAHIMEN, Teoria eta Estrategia 2016/I

La Autonomía Comunal exige un desarrollo en todos los ámbitos productivos. El pensamiento es uno de esos ámbitos. Sin embargo, las facultades especializadas y los centros de investigación al servicio del Capital y los Estados, lo tienen bajo llave. Nahimen es un proyecto que apuesta por una estrategia de colectivización del pensamiento, por la reapropiación popular autónoma de ese espacio productivo. Nuestra revista quiere ser una herramienta más para ese fin: para contribuir a en que Euskal Herria se llegue a constituir el poder popular autónomo.
