Of course we can have a say in factories closing down. That is, if there are enough of us involved. Over a two-year period, the workers of the Peugeot factory in Aulnay opposed the closure of their factory. In the event, they were not able to prevent the closure. But they exposed the lies of the board of Europe's second largest car manufacturer, the false excuses and empty promises, the reasons behind the weakness of the French State. They even discovered they could be decision-makers. It might have been just a crack, but they did their best to break down the wall of despair.
