International Workers Day event. See the movie - The Take .

In the wake of Argentina’s spectacular economic collapse in 2001, Latin America’s most prosperous middle class finds itself in a ghost town of abandoned factories and mass unemployment. In suburban Buenos Aires, thirty unemployed auto-parts workers walk into their idle factory, roll out sleeping mats and refuse to leave. All they want is to re-start the silent machines. But this simple act —the take —has the power to turn the globalization debate on its head.

Director/producer Avi Lewis (Counterspin) and writer/producer and renowned author Naomi Klein (No Logo) take viewers inside the lives of ordinary visionaries, as they reclaim their work, their dignity and their democracy.

This movie will be shown at the Hudson Garden Collective Big Barn (Park diagonally at 4230 N Arthur & 4247 N Thorne Ave, N of Ashlan, btw. Palm & Fruit) in Fresno. Admission: Bring food or drink to share.

Also, Jan Slagter will speak about her experience with Argentina workers who re-opened their factories after the “owners” shut them down.

This event is sponsored by The Community Alliance newspaper. For more information call (559) 226-0477.
