Documentary: A Silent Transition – towards a post-capitalist future

October 8

Tuesday, October 8th: Guest Wendy Keats from the Co-operative Council of New Brunswick and a new documentary A Silent Transformation.

A Silent Transformation is a documentary film about a movement towards a post-Capitalist future. With the current system leaving the most vulnerable members of society behind, with the powerful forces conceiving of everything as a commodity from which to extract value, the co-operative movement pursues a different vision. A vision that radically challenges commonly-held notions about work, ownership, entrepreneurship, democracy and collective agency. A vision that is becoming a lived reality in communities across Canada. A vision that is engaging ordinary Canadians to take charge of their economic future. While progressive movements, from Occupy Wall Street to Black Lives Matter, have been pressing for political change, the co-operative movement has been revolutionizing the economy through A Silent Transformation.
