Today at the Union Coop Symposium we heard from the Mexico Electrical Union (SME) about their decade long struggle to save jobs destroyed by the Calderon administration. it was an incredibly moving story and they continue to fight the government to uphold the agreement that includes 13 electrical plants and 50 buildings. I didn't take as complete notes as I had hoped due to being so enthralled.

Just finished translating the final chapter of @luisrazeto's .

"Razeto turns [here] to the economic, political, and cultural crisis of contemporary civilization... The analysis is rooted in Latin-American history and informed by Razeto鈥檚 study of ... Gramsci which began in his years of exile after the 1973 coup, and has particular relevance today in the context of the climate crisis, ... and crises of governability in country after country."

Coming to next month

@yogthos @ntnsndr @Matt_Noyes @SocialCoop , a common forum for international federation of coop is needed to help each with capital, principles, consultation, mutual support, production skill and theories, historical learning. A market domination with global presence is necessary. I have no hope with #ILO #ICA.

Is there a way to form an federated forum that in reality support each other. ? In india I can see few orgs like amul, sewa, uralungal, ... But are not federated yet AFAIK.

Japan still in 1950s? Show more

@Matt_Noyes @liaizon I'd check out the Global Alliance for Banking on Values. My credit union is a member, as are several other progressive ones.

Is anyone going to the Union-Coop Symposium in Cincinnati, OH this week?

Who wants to join a zoom call to hear about the Platform Cooperativism Conference?

I imagine we could recruit a few Social.Coop members who were there to share their thoughts and impressions...
