In the wake of Argentina’s dramatic collapse in 2001, Latin America’s most prosperous middle class finds itself in a ghost town of abandoned factories and mass unemployment.In suburban Buenos Aires, thirty unemployed auto-parts workers walk into their idle factory, roll out sleeping mats and refuse to leave. All they want is to re-start the silent machines.

But this simple act-the take-has the power to turn the globalization debate on its head.

Director/producer Avi Lewis (CBC’s counterSpin) and writer/producer and renowned author Naomi Klein ( No Logo) take viewers inside the lives of ordinary visionaries, as they reclaim their work, their dignity and their democracy.

Monday, Nov 21st – 6pm Followed by a casual discussion.

Free! Part of Edumacation Mondays. Brought to you by the Hamilton Centre for Teaching Peace.
