Occupy, Resist, Produce – VIOME

VIOME is a building materials factory in Thessaloniki, Greece, which was abandoned by its owners at the peak of the Greek crisis, in 2011. Subsequently it was occupied by its workers, and has been producing natural detergents under workers' control since 2013. Despite being an emblematic and inspiring struggle, today VIOME is under imminent threat of eviction. Find out how you can get involved and be part of the struggle at viome.org.

You are free to organise screenings in your town and use this film for any non-commercial purpose. 

The closing video clip is "At utopia's fiesta" by Greek militant hip-hop collective Social Waste. It was filmed at the factory of VIOME.
