Malaga, June 9, 2024

To whom it may concern

The International Network for Urban Research and Action is a

Network of people involved in Action and Research in localities

and cities started in 1991 and formed by researchers and

activists from many different countries, between which many

European ones, Cuba, Australia, Canada, USA, Mexico, Chile,

Hong Kong, China, Japan.

During the INURA Conference in Malaga held on the 3rd – 9

June 2024 the impressive 3 year struggle of the Unitary trade

union representation, the Factory Collective ex GKN and the

female and male workers ex GKN, was presented to us by

Marvi Maggio, a trade union representative. We fully support

the requests and claims of the Collective to the Italian state

and the regional government to make a public intervention for

a reconversion of the factory towards a renewable energy and

light mobility hub in Campi Bisenzio, Tuscany, under the control of the

workers. In this way, the place of work would be preserved

through reconversion.

We admire the practice of the collective that illuminates the

present: solidarity, interconnected struggles, convergence

practice, and the urgent transformation of production from

polluting ones towards ecologic production.

On the basis of our knowledge we support the collective and

encourage all the involved institutions, political and technical to

realize their claims for public intervention for the reconversion

of the factory.
