RIC Edinburgh Assembly: Local Democracy Beyond the Ballot Box
Wed 26 April 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
On May the 4th we will be voting to elect our new City of Edinburgh Council. We are grateful to live in a democracy where we can vote for our chosen party or candidates but is this the "Real Democracy" we want and need? In this meeting we will be discussing what we can do as communities and citizens to bring about real change.
We have two inspiring activists to lead off our discussion, Maggie Chapman, Co-convenor of the Scottish Green Party and former councillor for Leith Walk and Brian Robertson, UNITE the Union and City of Edinburgh Council.
