In Zrenjanin we met up with some of the ex workers from a long standing worker owned factory struggle at Jugoremedija, that has been under threat of Privatization since 2000.
Serbian politicians and investors fear this kind of organising, despite being sucessful, will “bring us back to the dark days of self-management”.
You can read an English write up of the history of the struggle, and similar struggles in Serbia, in the above link.
We spent one night hosted in the garden of a library that was donated to the council by the author of serval books about the resistance in Serbia. There where we had a discussion with the workers, partly filmed, and met up with others who stayed a little longer in Beograd.
