THE HOLISTIC CATALAN COOPERATIVE
WHAT IS THE HOLISTIC CATALAN COOPERATIVE?
It  is a transition initiative that will allow us to build a lifestyle  where neither the bank nor the state will be needed, resting on  different legal forms to cover the needs of its members.
Cooperative as a self-managed economic and political project where each member participates equally.
Holistic  because it gathers all the basic elements of an economic system such as  production, consumption, finance and has its own currency. At the same  time it wants to integrate the full range of activity sectors needed in  people’s lives (ex: schools, hospitals, transport…).
Catalan  because it is organized and operates in the territory of Catalunya.
WHAT ARE THE AIMS OF THE COOPERATIVE?
To  build a network of cooperative economic relations and solidarity  between people and social enterprises, to be out of the market rules and  not controlled by the state.
Make it a space to promote and grow  organic products and local services really needed for our daily lives  and new projects of self-employment releated to these  needs.
Ultimately  this could become an alternative society out of the control of the  capitalist system, with its own security and welfare to garantee the  basic needs of all its members throughout their life journey.
In the short term, the specific objectives for witch we associate collectively are:
- To reduce our expenses in euros and help grow the currencies of the “EcoNetwork” (non-official name).
- To reduce the price of organic and handcrafted products throught collective purchasing.
- To give an option to sell directly to producers.
- To give dignifying and exciting self employment opportunities to people who are unemployed or want to quit their paid job.
- To facilitate a collective economic output to people who have become insolvent in the face of banking or the state.
- To provide everyone with saving options outside the traditional banking system.
About author
We are just like you, citizens of the world fed up with the critical situation and we believe a real change can be achieved through the coordination of non violent actions and self-managed alternatives around the world. There must be a better way of dealing with the survival and enjoyment of our life, we believe in consensus and in non-hierarchical organization. We believe that another world is possible, where nobody has to die of hunger while others throw food away. We don’t have flags and we fight the borders crossing them. We try to be in the best place at the good moment, from Brussels to Lisbon, from Madrid to Athens, reporting but also acting. We come from activist groups, hacking platforms or post capitalist projects and we participated a lot in the Spanish revolution since the beginning. We leave our respective assemblies for this international project of global coordination but we keep in touch, sending back information and visiting regularly. We are open to integrate new people to our project or to help the creation of new teams. More information about our way to work in the protocol.
