BEYOND ELECTIONS

This brand new film, just out as of September, 2008, has a new approach to some big questions:  What is democracy? Freedom, equality, participation? Everyone has his or her own definition. Across the world, over 120 countries now have at least the minimum trappings of democracy: the freedom to vote for all citizens. But for many, this is just the beginning not the end. After decades of U.S.-backed dictatorships, civil wars, and devastating structural adjustment policies, representative politics is in crisis and citizens across the Americas have begun to redefine democracy on their own terms: Participatory Democracy. This brand new documentary examines democracy in nations such as Brazil, Colombia, and Canada, and features interviews with journalists like Amy Goodman as well as cooperative and community members, elected representatives, academics, and activists.

Wheelchair accessible at our 411 28th Street entrance

Before and after the film, everyone's invited to indulge in our Humanist Vegetarian Organic Refreshments
