China and the New Cold War
June 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Join Danny Haiphong and Ben Norton for a discussion on US/China relations and the current pervasive demonization of China as a rival to American hegemony. The US has embarked on a $1.7 Trillion dollar thirty year plan to rebuild and upgrade our nuclear arsenal, China and Russia have answered in kind. Join this discussion about why this has happened, how it threatens the future of life on our planet, and how we can organize and advocate against this dangerous, unnecessary, and absurdly expensive new development.
