Forty Years Since Vietnam: What Have We Learned?

Thursday, April 16, 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM
Eliot 314
This event is open to the public.

In commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the Vietnam War, Asian-American Activist, Black Panther Radical, and 60's revolutionary, ALEX HING gives a lecture on American imperialism's four current wars, the lack of an antiwar movement, and the role of climate change.

Alex was a very active member in the antiwar movement, going to Hanoi in 1970 and returning to help the Vietnamese celebrate the signing of the Paris Peace Accords. A quote from Alex, "Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan. Nobody knew we were in Yemen until it was announced that 250 special forces were being pulled out. The U.S. is also thinking of being involved in the Ukraine. This is madness but nobody is protesting. During the Vietnam War, the majority of the US people opposed the war and we were able to stop it. We need to discuss how the imperialists revised history so that they could continue to destroy people. The current wars have to do with rapid climate change." Don't miss the opportunity to hear the analysis of such an integral movement member and committed activist!
