Democracy 2011

Today on Your Call: How did 2011 change democracy worldwide?

On the next Your Call, we’ll talk about the year in democracy.  It has been one full year since Tunisian fruit vendor, Mohamed Bouazizi, set himself on fire--setting off a domino chain of revolts and revolutions in the Arab world and around the globe.  Now there are 150 cities with Occupy movements in California alone.  What’s the moment from the 2011 grassroots uprisings that will stay with you?  Join us at 10 or email us at feedback@yourcallradio.org.  What does democracy mean to you today?  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and You.

Guests:

Khaled Fahmy, associate professor of Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies and History at NYU; currently on leave from NYU and teaching at American University of Cairo

Fred Weir, Canadian journalist who lives in Moscow and specializes in Russian affairs 

Sarah Ahmed, social worker in Yemen, currently in Tunisia doing a training on gender-based violence
