Re: “Inkworks Press, 1974–2016


Thanks for this review of Inkworks, on the occasion of its demise. I was sorry to see it go. As a press operator at Inkworks from 1999 to 2008, I appreciated Inkworks as both a union shop and workers collective. Inkworks suffered from both the changing nature of the capitalist market, and the fact that small to medium-sized print sops just couldn't compete in these new conditions.

The demise of Inkworks was more than just a factor of its aging staff, of which I was one for a time. It was due to the fact that all co-ops, including worker-owned co-ops, are subject to operating within the capitalist market, which is a hostile and aggressive profit driven environment to say the least. Only by overthrowing capitalism can we establish a truly cooperative economy, in which we say that "from each according to his means, and to each according to his needs" is the guiding principle.

Comradely greetings to all

Chris Kinder, former Inkworker
