Body paragraph

[Editor's note: The 2nd Euromediterranean "Workers' Economy" Meeting is scheduled to take place October 28-30, 2016 in Thessaloniki, Greece.  The organizers are now seeking proposals from participants and allies and have asked GEO to share their request with our readers. Inquiries and proposals can be sent to]

While the phenomenon that primarily concerns the gathering is the occupation of the means of production and their management by the workers themselves, we also extend an invitation to a number of other experiences that fall within the “Workers’ Economy” and share organizational framework or political imperatives with the recuperated enterprises, such as self-managed work collectives. Likewise, we welcome the contribution of experiences of solidarity structures and alternative economy networks. We also extend an invitation to members of social and political organizations, collectives and trade unions that uphold workers’ and social control and self-management as a central political imperative and support the workers in their struggle, as well as to thinkers who study and promote these activities. Finally, we invite workers who have chosen other routes of defending their means of subsistence beyond self-management (such as co-management), for a level and honest discussion and exchange of experiences.
