The 1970s Co-op Wars
Produced by Maria Almli

Think of “co-ops” and you might conjure up images of bulk food stores and tie-dye wearing hippies. But in the 1970s, co-op wars raged in the Twin Cities, dividing communities and fracturing the young movement. In this documentary, producer Maria Almli interviews those who were there. Learn how the co-op wars began—when a secretive group in support of Marxist principles began retooling operations for the newly emerging hippie grocery stores—and how members found themselves in the midst of a car bombing and violent takeovers.
