#ccstalks Tweetchat on ‘Is promulgating ordinances democratic?’

Event Date: 07 Jan 2015; Time: 7-8 pm
Venue: tweetchat.com #ccstalks

In the last week, nine ordinances have been promulgated by the government. Is this democratic? Join us for #ccstalks, Wednesday, 7 January 2015 from 7-8pm as we debate this issue.
