"Tony Dunn, a longtime labor activist, who is starting a worker-owned 
business in Lynn, will talk about his recent trip to *Mondragon in 
Spain*. He will be joined by Eric Johnson, an active member of the U.S. 
Federation of Cooperatives, who works at Red Sun Press, a unionized 
worker-owned business in Boston.

While unemployment reaches Depression-era levels, the politicians talk 
about cutting deficits, ignoring the needs of the 99 percent. How do we 
build a new economy based on the needs of the people? Mondragon is a 
network of worker-owned co-ops that is Spain's seventh-largest 
corporation. *The Mondragon cooperatives employ more than 80,000 people 
and virtually never lay anyone off.*

People are already working to bring the Mondragon model to the North Shore.
All are welcome to this free program."
