In suburban Buenos Aires, thirty unemployed auto-parts workers walk into their idle factory, roll out sleeping mats and refuse to leave.

All they want is to re-start the silent machines. But this simple act – The Take – has the power to turn the globalization debate on its head.

In the wake of Argentina’s dramatic economic collapse in 2001, Latin America’s most prosperous middle class finds itself in a ghost town of abandoned factories and mass unemployment. The Forja auto plant lies dormant until its former employees take action. They’re part of a daring new movement of workers who are occupying bankrupt businesses and creating jobs in the ruins of the failed system.

But Freddy, the president of the new worker’s co-operative, and Lalo, the political powerhouse from the Movement of Recovered Companies, know that their success is far from secure. Like every workplace occupation, they have to run the gauntlet of courts, cops and politicians who can either give their project legal protection or violently evict them from the factory.

The story of the workers’ struggle is set against the dramatic backdrop of a crucial presidential election in Argentina, in which the architect of the economic collapse, Carlos Menem, is the front-runner. His cronies, the former owners, are circling: if he wins, they’ll take back the companies that the movement has worked so hard to revive.

Armed only with slingshots and an abiding faith in shop-floor democracy, the workers face off against the bosses, bankers and a whole system that sees their beloved factories as nothing more than scrap metal for sale.

With The Take, director Avi Lewis, one of Canada’s most outspoken journalists, and writer Naomi Klein, author of the international bestseller No Logo, champion a radical economic manifesto for the 21st century. But what shines through in the film is the simple drama of workers’ lives and their struggle: the demand for dignity and the searing injustice of dignity denied.

The United States Constitution is the supreme law in the land, yet today almost all politicians: Ignore it. Pervert it. Abridge it. Infringe it … AND even violate it with impunity.

Consequently, Americans see their country degenerating into a lawless, para-military police state before their very eyes.

Is it any wonder WE THE PEOPLE protest when politicians reward corporate greed, emit fiat currency, stifle Internet freedom, subject us to constant surveillance and foment perpetual wars?

Who authorized a standing army in this country, when Article I of the Constitution provides that no army shall be funded for more than two consecutive years?

Who authorized Federal Reserve Notes — intrinsically worthless “bills of credit” — when Article I, Section 10 says “We the People” can be required to accept nothing but gold and silver coin in payment of debts?

Who is trying to disarm WE THE PEOPLE when the BILL OF RIGHTS guarantees “the RIGHT to keep and bear arms” to preserve our freedom?

And why was the Department of Homeland Security set up in the District of Columbia when the Constitution already provides for “homeland security” in every one of the fifty states?

It’s clear, someone, or some group, is trying to take over America — and succeeding — as too many Americans stand idly by and watch.

By eroding the two most important powers WE THE PEOPLE have — the power of the PURSE and the power of the SWORD — usurpers and rogue politicians are attempting to destroy the Land of the FREE and the home of the BRAVE.

Let them try! MOLON LABE — in production now.
