Is One Day of Democracy Enough?

This Sunday from 5pm some of the comrades have decided to start up the Fantin Reading Group again, with a session on the topic of voting and state elections. Very topical! I'm sure we'll all be ready for a dose of political reality after Saturday's election. The readings aren't on the blog just yet, but can be found on the MARC Announce list (including a funny one by Adam Bandt, check it out). All welcome.
