*US-China Relations and the Rising Danger of War: A People’s Perspective*
Panelists: Richard Pendleton, Duncan McFarland, and Yu Weihai
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.

The program will feature presentations by a panel: (followed by
discussion): (1) 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. (2) Duncan McFarland, coordinator of the China Study group at the
Center for Marxist Education, will review Chinese foreign policy especially
towards the US. (3) 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.

Co-sponsored by US-China Peoples Friendship Association-New England and
Center for Marxist Education, and endorsed by United for Justice with Peace.
