special edition of the China Discussion Group on the 65th anniversary of the Chinese Revolution

Brief presentation by Duncan McFarland followed by discussion.


 o What were the political arrangements for Hong Kong at the time of the return from Britain to China?
o What is the process of the 2017 elections for Hong Kong chief executive and the protesters demands?
o What is the evidence of US manipulation of the situation to advance the anti-China "pivot"?
o What is the possible political resolution?
We will also discuss the project of marking the 65th anniversary of the victory of the Chinese Revolution (October 1, 1949) by launching a year long series of programs on the  major issues concerning China today. We will publish a pamphlet next year aimed at a facts based, open discussion of the socialist transition in China. On Oct. 9 we will define basic issues in the Left's understanding of China
