Democracy Gathering – building a democratic society after lockdown
26th May 2020 @ 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Crises – from ecological breakdown to the future of the NHS – are getting more serious because of the lack of real democracy at the heart of our political system. Political elites have been pursuing policies that mainly benefit the privileged few, while the rest of us have few ways to hold central government to account.
We can stop the powerful interests using this crisis to accelerate attacks on our rights and environment – if we unite to campaign for a radical new democratic settlement.
Over one week, we’ll be running 5 online sessions about how Covid-19 is changing our democracy and affecting the urgent issues of our time. Join us and expert speakers to explore the state of our democracy, then we can face the future together and campaign for it to be a democratic one.
