Cittie of Yorke pub
Occupy London’s Real Democracy working group invites you to the launch of the Democracy Café
With Rebecca Fisher from Corporate Watch
Rebecca is the editor of ‘Managing Democracy, Managing Dissent’ http://www.corporatewatch.org/democracy
She will argue that corporations, as institutional agents of capitalism, cannot co-exist with genuine democracy, as they are in fundamental contradiction. However, today through the ideology and practice of democracy’, in which public participation is limited and public opinion and actions severely conscribed, managed and repressed, this contradiction is hidden and popular consent to capitalist destruction is engineered.
The Democracy Café is where you can discuss key political issues in an informal setting with invited speakers. Future events will cover Iceland, the National Health Service and the media.
