7iber’s Hashtag Debates are returning tomorrow at Makan House in Jabal Luwebideh and the issue of the moment will be Jordan’s constitutional reforms. This is a discussion I’ve been looking forward to for some time and I’m glad it came together. We’re basically in the midst of having the country’s constitution change and much of the process is happening beyond the control or input of the average citizenry. From a royally-appointed committee that came up with a list of amendments behind closed doors to an illegitimate parliament that is (done) discussing them, the average person is out of the loop.
So the Hashtag Debates will be a good platform for people to come together to first and foremost learn about some of the changes happening via the knowledgable speakers, and secondly, to ask the key questions many of us have had building up ever since this endeavor was launched several months ago.
Makan Art Space/Jabal Luweibdeh, 8:00 pm.
