Occupy!

A polemical analysis of the history of the Fisher-Bendix factory in Kirby near Liverpool, over approximately twelve years, during which the factory was twice closed and the workforce declared redundant. On both occasions, the workers prevented the closure, and sustained by a government loan, the factory became one of the first of Tony Benn's worker co-operatives. The action taken by the workers involved Britain's first factory sit-ins 1972 up to the 1974 work-in, out of which was established a workers co-operative.
