Beyond Elections: TorontoTheBetter PWYC Movie Screening on October 25, 2011

STARTS OFF OUR 2011-2012 movie series with a review of options beyond the norms most North Americans currently associate with democracy. There is a reason citizens are taking to the streets from New York to Londo, to Toronto, to Mississauga. Elections are not putting citizens in charge of their destinies. Join us to consider some alternatives.
At a time when  Canada’s federal government is the choice of less than half of Canadians and promotes policies the great majority of residents in Canada’s largest cities reject, and the lowest percentage of Canadians in history bother to vote, it is the right time to do things differently.

From Venezuela’s  communal  councils to Brazil’s Participatory Budgetin, Beyond Elections  looks at the range of alternatives in the Americas and asks us, “what is  the best way of doingdemocracy?. 

Join us for TorontotheBetter’s first movie screening of our 2011-12. Movies. Discussion. Action.

DATE: Tuesday Oct.25, 2011
TIME: 7pm
LOCATION: OISE, 252 Bloor St. West – Room 3311
