Occupied Factories and Workers' Control in Venezuela



From the Mitsubishi auto plant to the Inveval valve plant; from the Gotcha T-Shirt factory to the INAF hardware factory, workers young and old, male and female, tell their stories and explain why they came to the realization that demanding nationalization under workers' control is the only way forward. With examples explaining how factory and workers' councils function, the role of the communal councils, and the movement for "trade unionism of a new type," this video provides a living, breathing look at a crucial aspect of the Venezuelan Revolutionary process. 

To make  Hugo Chávez victory we're rerunning this little beauty  on the Venezuelan Revolution. Produced by Vive TV in Venezuela, this new documentary on FRETECO explores the movement of occupied factories and workers' control in Venezuela.
