Session#3 - The structure and the struggle - Viable coop organisation and contributions to transition in society

Natalie Brenner & Jaime Villareal (May First Movement Technology, USA/Mexico)

  • Experience (across years) of operating a digital infrastructure coop with a membership comprising autonomous movement organisations.
  • Working with a machinery (an ecology?) of boards, annual assemblies, board elections, member priorities; paid and unpaid contributions.
  • Meeting political priorities as distinct from (alongside?) livelihood or infrastructure priorities.
  • The structure and the struggle: legal, organisational and economic frameworks on one hand (coop form/coop law/coop incorporation, revenue framework, admin machinery, etc) and the struggle to transition operations towards ‘governance’ in the context of the world we want to see: a solidarity economy, a non-capitalist society and the commons.
  • The life of a coop in ‘the non-profit industrial complex’.
