Direct Democracy Under Construction: A Conversation with Dario Azzellini

In this episode of Forms of Life, host Nato Thompson speaks with documentary filmmaker, writer and political scientist Dario Azzellini about community organizing and social movements.

The Communal State: Communal Councils, Communes, and Workplace Democracy.

The particular character of what Hugo Chávez called the Bolivarian process lies in the understanding that social transformation can be constructed from two directions, “from above” and “from below.” Bolivarianism—or Chavismo—includes among its participants both traditional organizations and new autonomous groups; it encompasses both state-centric and anti-systemic currents.

An Interview with Dario Azzellini

Workers Control and/or Worker Cooperatives?

GEO: Dario, your co-edited book, Ours to Master and To Own, Workers Control from the Commune to the Present, presents a rich variety of worker control initiatives. These have taken place not only in Europe, but in Algeria, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, India, Indonesia, the USA, Venezuela, Yugoslavia, and other countries. Can you clarify for us what these examples have in common, and what you see as their importance?

Ours to Master and to Own: Workers' Control from the Commune to the Present, a conversation with Immanuel Ness and Dario Azzellini

Capitalism would have us believe we need our bosses. Tonight's discussion reveals the history of workers who dare to disagree. 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 system by creating institutions of democratic self-management aimed at controlling production without bosses.

Venezuela. Il controllo operaio

Nei primi anni della presidenza Chávez, quella del controllo operaio era un’idea
sostenuta solo da un piccolo gruppi di lavoratori e dallo stesso Presidente, che di quando in quando si dichiarava a suo favore. Le nazionalizzazioni nel settore industriale sono iniziate solo nel 2005, e in un primo momento sono state una risposta alle occupazioni di fabbriche e alle manifestazioni dei lavoratori e delle lavoratrici.
