Communes and Workers' Control in Venezuela

In Communes and Workers' Control in Venezuela: Building 21st Century Socialism from Below, Dario Azzellini offers an account of the Bolivarian Revolution from below. While authors on Venezuela commonly concentrate on former president Hugo Chávez and government politics, this book shows how workers, peasants and the poor in urban communities engage in building 21st century socialism through popular movements, communal councils, communes and fighting for workers' control.

Društvena transformacija zahteva​ ​otvoreni put

Dario Acelini (Dario Azzelini) je teoretičar i politički aktivista koji živi na relaciji Berlin – Karakas.

Radia Obskura: Konkrete Utopien und Punchlines

Die heutige Sendung widmet sich nicht einem speziellen Thema, sondern ist einer politischen Rück- und Vorausschau zwischen Analyse und Utopie gewidmet.

"Konterrevolution" in Venezuela), die Entwicklung sozialer Bewegungen und selbstorganisierter Arbeitsprojekte sowie die sozialen Transformationen, die dadurch angestoßen werden.

Worker Control and Workplace Democracy. An Alternative Labour History

Over the past 135 years, in all kinds of historical situations and during various political and economic crises and in different political systems, workers have taken control of their workplaces. Yet this story of workers self-administered production is rarely told. Capitalists, bourgeois governments and administrators of systems based on the exploitation of workers usually have little interest in disseminating the history of self-organized workers; those who have successfully run factories without bosses.
