ESL Finalist, Mock Debate and Leiden Open

What a week! After Ernest and Joel broke to the ESL Final at the Manchester IV last weekend, Lund Debate Society kicked off the week with a US-Primary Mock Debate in cooperation with Democrats Abroad Sweden on Monday. Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, represented by LDS members, engaged in a lively debate about universal health care, economic stability and defense strategies. Not only did they have to defend their stance against each other and the engaged audience, but also against a LDS-member speaking for Donald Trump.
The members did not represent their own views and merely jumped into the role of a presidential candidate.

This weekend Lund Debate Society member Olle Reberg competes in the Leiden Open. He is joined by John Tsopanis – we wish them the best of luck!

You also feel like competing this weekend? Join us tomorrow at 9.30am at Folksuniversitet for this year’s first Mini-Tournament. Find out more here!

Many thanks to everyone for coming to our last week’s debate café and engaging in an informative debate about the US primary elections, democracy and leadership. The motion ran was: TH believes that Party Elites should be solely responsible for nominating presidential candidates in the US.

Would you like to find out more about the presidential elections? If yes, we invite you to attend a mock debate between pro-Bernie vs. pro-Hillary supporters hosted by Democrats Abroad and the Lund Debate Society. The event will be held today (22nd of February) at Folksuniversitet starting at 18.00. For more information visit our Facebook event.
