US-China relations and the rising danger of war: a people's perspective

When: Saturday, February 9, 2019, 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm
Where: Center for Marxist Education • 550 Mass. Ave. • Cambridge

US-China relations are deteriorating and the danger of conflict is increasing.  US national security policy has now targeted China is a principal obstacle to American  interests.  Tensions are rising as the US navy patrols the South China Sea despite Chinese objections and Trump persists in his tariff war.  Meanwhile, mainstream media conducts a campaign to vilify China while many on the Left remain silent.

What can we do to work for peace?  People-to-people relations assume great importance at this time in promoting understanding and friendship.  We will celebrate the Chinese New Year and discuss how people can take the initiative in building relationships and presenting a balanced and more accurate picture.
 
Panel presentation (followed by discussion):
 
  • Richard Pendleton, president of New England chapter of US-China Peoples Friendship Association, will describe his trip to China in 1971 and talk about the history of China friendship work in the Boston area.
  • Duncan McFarland, coordinator of the China Study group at the Center for Marxist Education, will review Chinese foreign policy especially towards the US.
  • Yu Weihai, professor and dean of Center for Marxist Parties in Foreign Countries of China Central Normal University in Wuhan, will comment on current issues from a Chinese perspective.
