The rise of democracy from below

10:00a.m. to 11:30a.m.
Church Land Programme Boardroom
Church Land Programme Boardroom, 340 Burger Street
Pietermaritzburg ZA

The lecture seeks to cover how the power of the organised masses is vested in ordinary people to effect change. This power could be in the form of an ‘’x’’ for individuals to ascend the office, or putting people above the office. This power has led to the fall of the eThekwini Metro Empire and opens new possibilities of engagement with popular struggles like Abahlali baseMjondolo. Please bring pen and paper, and, if you can, any visuals showing people's power to consider in the class. This class will be offered in English and isiZulu as needed.

Bring one of the following:
Food items to help those affected in the recent floods
Old blankets to help those affected in the recent floods
Second hand clothes to help those affected by the recent floods
