The Ideas of November Fifth Coalition: Discussion with International Students

Discussion with Professor Harry Boyte and other international students on the ideas of November Fifth Coalition. We are likely to discuss the images of "superhero" candidates in our countries and reflect on how people make decisions when they participate (or do not participate) in elections in our countries.

WHEN: Tuesday, May 1, 12:45pm-1:45pm
WHERE: Room 173, Humphrey Center
WHO: You and other international students (please, forward)

Please, look at this web site for more information.

It will be great if you can also forward this info to other international students who might be willing to join us for this conversation. I know that time is scarce at this time of the year, but we believe that your input would make a difference. Thank you, and see you then!

Organized by the Global Policy Forum and the Center for Democracy and Citizenship, University of Minnesota.

"In today's elections, most candidates present themselves as superheroes who will solve our problems if we elect them and denounce their opponents as potential disasters. Voters often pretend to believe this, treating elections as a consumer choice about who can deliver the goods. For the future of our country, this distortion has to change."
