In Marx is Back, a young Argentine worker begins to read the Communist Manifesto and dreams about meeting Marx. The mini series takes place in modern-day Argentina, where workers bear the brunt of the economic crisis.
In this episode, the 2008 crisis hits Argentina and the workers at Martin’s factory are facing suspensions and layoffs.
These videos were produced by the PTS (Socialist Workers Party) of Argentina in 2013.
These videos have been used to discuss Marxism in unions and classrooms. If you use them, we would love to hear about how it went. Email us at [email protected]
