Kazova Workers, a group of textile workers who launched an occupation protest after being fired with no repartitions or deserved wages in early 2013 and obtained their own factory machines after months of struggle, have formed a cooperative. The court had ruled that their former employers had to hand them their machines in return to unpaid salaries. The cooperative will continue to produce sweaters and also open a workshop and factory. The goal is to start producing as soon as possible.
