On May 7, 2012 Grupo de las Indias started a campaign calling for a P2P directed local re-industrialization swarming action.
They sent personal emails to more than 300 local and social leaders, including a mini-dossier in Spanish that shows how P2P industrialization could help stop the growth of unemployment in those local economies.
Spanish unemployment is the largest in Europe with around 24,44% of the general population unemployed and one out of every two young people looking unsuccessfully for a job.
The cooperative is offering to send out consulting teams to show how this P2P re-industrialization could be put into practice in any local setting. The hope is that this will become a real swarming action that can reverse the economic downturn that has gripped the Iberian peninsula. There is a campaign page in Spanish. A translated version of that page which also has a translation of the mini-dossier is here.
There have been positive reactions from local councils, activists and non profit organizations and expectations are running high that this will take off in a serious way.
