November 2021 (Season 5 - Episode 03)

In this episode of All Things Co-op, Cinar, Larry, and Kevin bring back Camila Piñeiro to discuss new legislative developments in Cuba that specifically focus on growing worker cooperatives. They briefly discuss the history of worker cooperatives in Cuba, the previous limitations on cooperatives, and the recent removal of those limitations. While US media paints recent protests in Cuba as a call for neo-liberal capitalism, Piñeiro tells us that this is really just a new phase in the "human experiment" that is Cuba's revolution. A new generation of Cubans are looking to reacquaint socialism with worker control and looking to vest that control in worker co-operatives rather than the solely in the state or party.

Cooperative Structures and Organizations

In this episode of All Things Co-op, Larry, Cinar, and Kevin talk about the lessons from occupy as we commemorate the 10 year anniversary of that revolutionary fall. They discuss what we should learn from that experience, what we owe to it, and how it still provides us crucial lessons on organizing in revolutionary times. It also forces us to reckon with the idealism of pure horizontalism, and the necessity of leadership in periods of struggle.

In this first episode of Season 5, Larry, Kevin, and Cinar share their thoughts on the status of co-operative organizations, the need for more overtly political co-operative organizations, and how big a role co-operative organizations should play in attempting to build the institutions that could serve as a part of an institutional challenge to the status quo.
