This Sunday at 4pm Co-Soap member Greg will be facilitating a workshop at Occupy Oakland to discuss cooperative production strategies. Learn about the history of the Unemployed Exchange Association founded here in Oakland during the great depression and brain storm ways we can start making collective production a reality in our own community! Share your skills and meet people who want to build something bigger. Workshop and discussion will be ran by Greg from Co-Soap Worker Cooperative but will require the active participation of all attendees.
Workshops will be held all day Sunday. Visit this link below for the schedule:
The goal of this workshop is to share skills and potentially establish cooperative producing systems within the Occupy Oakland movement to empower participants and increase the collective economic power of the movement. Be prepared to share your skills (eg sewing, crocheting, knitting, shoe repair, electronic repair, programming, roofing, construction, anything you can do that is of value to someone else, etc).
The Principles of Cooperation and the Populist movements of the 1880s and 1890s will also be discussed!
