Occupy Salem Free University presents:
Building a Cooperative Economy: From Mondragon to Massachusetts
Monday, January 30
Speakers: Tony Dunn and Eric Johnson
The Gathering, 217 Essex St, Salem
see Wicked Local
"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."
