Occupied Bauen Hotel - the struggle continues

If this story sounds vaguely familiar, it may be because Labourstart ran a campaign last year in support of workers in Argentina who, faced with a mismanaged business about to close decided to take matters into their own hands.

That company was Zanon and it's part of a network of worker-managed businesses that are transforming people's lives. At the centrr of that network is the Hotel Bauen, a four star hotel in Buenos Aires, run by its workers.

The hotel has been targeted by right wing politicians in the city legislature of Buenos Aires for eviction. The hotel is now on emergency footing, with eviction possible within days.
