*Trump's Global Policies: Russia, the world and implications for the peace
movement*

*A timely presentation by Mark Solomon followed by discussion*

*Thursday, March 23, 7 pm*

*Friends meeting, 5 Longfellow Park, , Cambridge (near Harvard Square)*



The bizarre Russian controversy complete with charges of influencing the
presidential election has diverted attention from the existential dangers
of Trump's foreign policy.  Trump and his right wing advisor Steven Bannon
are pushing an aggressive "America First" policy driven by near
unimaginably destructive nuclear weapons.  There is increasing danger of
conflict and war with China and North Korea that could result in massive
destruction.



This presentation will analyze the political and strategic influences
underlying Trump's global policies and will look at how the projected
"reset" with Russia relates to those global objectives. It will also
consider the dangers inherent in liberal and centrist efforts to foment a
new cold war with Russia.  All of these pressing threats need the immediate
attention and action by peace activists.



Mark Solomon is professor of history emeritus at Simmons College and a
former national co-chair of Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and
Socialism.
