On Monday 13 February Jose Julian Pununuri, a worker from the worker-occupied Zanon ceramics factory in Argentina, will be speaking in Oxford as part of a national speaker tour organised by No Sweat and the Argentina Solidarity Campaign.

A worker from Argentina's occupied factory movement speaks

12.30pm, Monday 13 February, The Okinaga Room, Wadham College, Parks Road

All welcome

A joint meeting hosted by Oxford No Sweat and Oxford University Labour Club, part of a nation wide tour being put on by No Sweat and the Argentina Solidarity Campaign.

Come and hear Jose Julian Pununuri from the worker-occupied Zanon tile factory in Neuquen, Argentina speak about his experiences being a part of Argentina's 'recovered factories' movement, in which all decisions are taken by majority vote in mass meetings - where workers have saved their factory from closure, raised wages for workers and invested in a local education system. Can workers' control pose an alternative to capitalism?

At 8pm that evening there will be an exclusive showing of Naomi Klein's new film 'The Take' - not yet released in the cinemas - at University College (on the High st), Goodheart Seminar Room.

NB the Zanon meeting has previously been advertised as being on 12 rather than 13 February due to a typing error. The meeting is on Monday 13 February.
