Build the future now - Cooperatives as practical utopias
An interview with Trademark Belfast conducted by Owen Connolly of Green Hope Politics about the potential, challenges and resistance to building a cooperative economy...
“[in a cooperative] the opposition between capital and labour is abolished… even if at first only in the form that the workers in association become their own capitalists” (Marx, 1894: 571-72).
"...the system of civilised co-operators is the system of socialism" (Lenin 1923)
"...cooperatives are a tool for class struggle” (Gramsci 1919)
"..better than working for some jumped up wee knob who can't wipe his own arse without an actual worker present" (Alice McLarnon 2020)
