[OPIRG-EVENTS] Book Launch: No-Nonsense Guide to Democracy - Apr 29

How democratic is democracy?
Come find out at a book launch with Richard Swift, author of The 
No-Nonsense Guide to Democracy.

When: Monday, April 29 7-9pm
Where: Octopus Books, 116 Third Ave.
Info: 233-2589, www.octopusbooks.org
FREE!!! Wheelchair accessible, although the washrooms are not.

We take the pulse of today's body politic and find the patient in an 
enfeebled state.  Swift's book explores how democracy is constricted and 
deformed by economic power-brokers and a self-serving political class, from 
Birmingham to Bangalore.  A sterile consensus of technocrats, neo-liberals 
and spin-doctors worldwide has usurped the hopes for a democratic future.

Richard Swift is also a co-editor of the New Internationalist magazine and 
is based in Toronto.
Brought to you by Octopus Books, The New Internationalist and Between the
