US-China ‘Cold War’ and the Working Class
With a global pandemic and the resulting global recession, international cooperation is more important than ever. But the United States and Chinese governments remain in conflict. In this session, learn about how to best understand U.S.-Chinese relations, how they are rooted in growing dysfunctions of the neoliberal global order, and how socialists in the U.S. should oppose this new Cold War.
Tobita Chow is the director of Justice Is Global, a special project of People’s Action to create a more just and sustainable global economy and defeat right-wing nationalism. He is organizing a progressive internationalist alternative to the growing tensions between the US and China.
Below, you will find a recording of the session as well as a recommended reading list.
