"Can We Do It Ourselves?" Film Screening & Discussion says
Join Dana Pedersen from Cooperation Texas for a special film screening and discussion! There will also be an information and merchandise table set up for folks who are interested in learning more about cooperatives and Cooperation Texas.

This new documentary from the Swedish media cooperative Fria Tidningar confronts come common criticisms of cooperative enterprises - that they must be inefficient, inflexible, or otherwise inferior to capitalist enterprises - with the experiences of actual worker-owners and insights from cooperative researchers in the U.S. and Sweden. The film features interviews with GEO's Jessica Gordon Nembhard, as well as worker-owners from Equal Exchange and Cooperative Home Care Associates.

Can We Do It Ourselves calls into question the fact that democracy prevails in so many models of world politics, yet not in economic spheres. By examining key differences between market, capitalist and democratic economies, the filmmakers are able to present the many perceived benefits of empowering the working class and re-calibrating the scales of corporate influence.
