On 14 May, employees of the Graphic Cooperative MOM, former Lanci Printing, in Buenos Aires (Argentina), were “brutally evicted by the Metropolitan Police that arrested 15 of them”, according the Federation of Worker Cooperatives in Argentina, FECOOTRA.
Mom’s workers have been occupying the factory since May 2012, hoping to receive a bankruptcy order from Lanci and transform it into a worker cooperative; in the meantime they maintain their jobs and work. The employees still have to replace two years’ salary.
