In Argentina, groups of workers are taking over bankrupt workplaces and running them democratically — without bosses. "The Take", a political thriller directed by Avi Lewis and written by Naomi Klein, is one answer to the question posed by both critics and supporters of radical movements worldwide: "We know what you're against, but what are you for? Occupy. Resist. Produce. See This Film. IF YOU ARE FOR THIS FILM, MAKE SURE EVERYONE SEES IT THIS WEEKEND!!

"THE TAKE" ("La Prise") un film de Naomi Klein et Avi Lewis À L'AFFICHE À MONTRÉAL Ex-Centris (Français) 3536 St. Laurent Blvd - (514) 847-2206 Daily at 12:30pm, 4pm, 9:25pm EX-CENTRIS : http://www.ex-centris.com AMC Forum (English) 2313 St. Catherine St. West, Montreal - (514) 904-1250 Daily at 1:50pm, 10:15pm AMC FORUM: http://www.cinema.ca/all/c009.htm Qui est le patron? Le film "The Take" ("La Prise") est un thriller politique qui répond bien aux questions posées par les critiques et les supporteurs de mouvements coopératifs et syndicaux dans le monde entier qui sont intéressés par la globalisation mondiale. En Argentine, des groupes de travailleurs occupant des usines en banqueroute les font fonctionner démocratiquement, avec succès, et sans les patrons. Ce documentaire couvre le mouvement des usines occupées en Argentine, où les travailleurs en chômage saisissent des entreprises abandonnées pour les convertir en coopératives de travail. Au site web www.thetake.org, on constate que: "Avi Lewis (Counterspin) et auteure renommée Naomi Klein (No Logo) apportent les spectateurs aux vies des visionnaires ordinaires, au fur et à mésur qu'ils réclament leur travail, leur dignité, et leur démocratie." LA PRISE donne la possibilité d'éléver le profil du mouvement des coopératives de travail de façon significative.
