Fabrica Ocupada: Naomi Klein on Argentina's Quiet Revolution

Here in Buenos Aires, every week brings news of a new occupation: a four-star hotel now run by its cleaning staff, a supermarket taken by its clerks, a regional airline about to be turned into a cooperative by the pilots and attendants. In small Trotskyist journals around the world, Argentina's occupied factories, where the workers have seized the means of production, are giddily hailed as the dawn of a socialist utopia. In large business magazines like the Economist, they are ominously described as a threat to the sacred principle of private property. The truth lies somewhere in between.

Naomi Klein: Snapshot of a nation: Argentina

There is a revolution going on in Argentina and only Naomi Klein seems to be noticing. This is Klein at her absolute best. My take on her has always been that she's a marvelous journalist and a god awful theorist/figurehead. And now that's she's playing journalist again the results are great. No one reports better from the front lines of corporate globalism then she does. Read the whole article, its worth it. If the world economy doesn't U-turn soon then this piece is a crystal ball.

Argh... sorry about the multiple trackbacks. What is it with movable type and trackbacks that never, ever seem to work the first time? Then when one edits the entry, it helpfully pings again and... oh the horror!

no worries, don't think anyone actually understands how trackbacks truly work...

Photographer Joseph Rodridguez has a nice photo essay on Pixelpress entitled "Crisis in Argentina"

Nice link, good photos, Argentina is a fascinating country, lets hope its not a sign of future economic decline in the "first" world...

This site is absolutely the worst site I have ever had the privelege of viewing in my life. Nobody will ever like this site so take it off right now!
