Economic Terror, Deep Democracy: street reports from Argentina and South Africa

Tuesday 22 October, 6.30pm
Old Theatre, Old Building 

Naomi Klein, author of No Logo, will look at places where living experiences in decentralised participatory democracy are gathering momentum in Economic Terror, Deep Democracy: street reports from Argentina and South Africa on Tuesday 22 October at LSE.

She will pay particular focus on Argentina. Argentina's rebellion of 19 and 20 December 2001 is seen by many around the world as a new kind of revolution. The protestors were not rejecting a regime but an ideology; this was the first popular revolt against neo-liberalism.

This lecture is free and open to all but a ticket is required.
