Letter from Argentina

Issue section: 

When workers occupied the Chilavert printshop in Buenos Aires it was threatened with closure. Ernesto Gonzalez, a Chilavert printer, describes running the factory under workers' control.

The economic situation was critical. Our printshop, Chilavert, was bankrupt, with workers owed a huge amount of wages.

The owner tried to sell key printing machines, so we occupied the factory to stop him. Then we began to think about permanently taking over production.
