Coops UK have released a report called “Brexit:Taking back control the cooperative way”. A pdf of the full report can be foundĀ here. A description and summary is foundĀ here.

It is interesting that the most successful message from the Leave campaign was “Take back control” of the country, so there is obviously a yearning for control, and yet for the majority of our time we have no control, not in our workplaces, housing or community resources. Cooperatives are the way to change that.

Also, from a Solidarity Economy perspective we need to stand against scapegoating of migrant workers. They create our common wealth which is siphoned away by landlords, banks, politicians and employers. Let’s continue to work with workers all across Europe to change this rotten system.
