Occupy, Resist, Produce: Factories Without Bosses

Beginning in 2001, Argentinean factory workers that had been fired from their jobs decided to take their jobs and their factories back.  Fighting against the former owners, the police and the government, these workers have reclaimed their right to work with dignity and without bosses. This is my undergraduate thesis that explores Argentina's occupied and recuperated factories and the history that led up to this unique social movement. This piece focuses on two factories, Brukman and Zanon, the most famous of the occupied factories.
