Re: Class Struggle with Organic Soap – A Greek Factory in the Hands of the Workers

The Vio.Me soap factory in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki is one of the most inspiring social experiments in Europe. Three years ago, the workers took control of their bankrupt workplace and became their own bosses. They see themselves as a concrete example of an alternative economic system transcending capitalism. Can their model catch on?

Arte Re: takes a look at work and resistance in the occupied soap factory.
