North Korea seems only to hit Western headlines when it conducts weapons tests and that was so again this fall. As usual, media reports were stripped of context and North Korea presented as a threat to peace.
This webinar takes a timely look beneath and behind western stereotypes of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea – as totalitarian, autocratic, economically bankrupt, led by a dynasty and a cult, and a nuclear bad-boy – to probe the realities, old and new, by addressing key questions including the ongoing Korean War; the nature and motivations of the Workers' Party of Korea governments; the reasons for its nuclear arsenal; the need to end sanctions; the history and present of the US nuclear threat in East Asia; and the path to national reunification, to which the Korean people, whether in the north, south or diaspora, remain committed.
The event is co-sponsored by Friends of Socialist China, Nodutdol , Qiao Collective, International Action Center, United National Antiwar Coalition.
