Telekommunisten is a German/Canadian Worker’s collective based in Berlin. The collective is involved in the art, hacker/free-software and activist communities, and their work focuses on promoting the ideal of workers’ self-organisation of production as a form of class struggle.
Telekommunisten is controlled by its workers and committed to staying that way. They believe that they can serve their customers best and at the lowest cost by remaining focused on meeting the needs of their workers and customers, not on profits for outside shareholders.
They believe that capitalism and the resulting global dominance of undemocratic corporations are the source of poverty, inequality, war and environmental catastrophe. They also believe a solution can be found in workers autonomously organizing their own production. Without the theft of the product of labour, the oligarchs would not have the wealth to control corrupt politicians and fund immoral wars.
