Dialogue Among Global Social Movements Actors
October 18th 6pm Segal Theater, CUNY Graduate Center, 365 5th Ave at

between global social movement actors. The discussions will be framed

Our first conversation will focus on the origins of the movements in
Egypt, Spain and the US, and the novel democratic forms that each
movement is inventing, from direct democracy and mass assemblies to
spokes councils. The second part of the events discussion will be
organized around questions that the various movement participants will
ask of one another. We hope to facilitate a discussion that both
answers questions and raises even more questions.
