The Trump administration bumped the military budget by 10% since he took office, including an expansion in developing nuclear weapons while attempting to eliminate Obamacare, cut SNAP benefits, and cancel student loan forgiveness. At the same time, Trump is slashing reproductive rights, repealing DACA, implementing bigoted policies like the ‘muslim travel ban’ and discrimination against LGBTQ people. While the current administration has waged war against us at home, it has been ruthless in its attacks abroad. The US has bombed Syria and Afghanistan, doubled the use of drone strikes, increased threats against Cuba, Iran, and imposed crippling sanctions on North Korea and Venezuela.
Trump has taken special interest in the course of his electoral campaign and his administration to target North Korea and China. Trump threatened China with a trade war throughout his electoral campaign and held his first diplomatic meeting with Japan. He has attempted to foment a further deterioration of relations between China and the Philippines, including controversial naval brush ups with the Chinese military. Since then he has continuously threatened North Korea with genocidal war and nuclear threats, including the unilateral implementation of THAAD in South Korea and his absurd speech at the U.N.
Join us to learn about the history of U.S. intervention in Asia and the developing crisis today, why our struggle here is tied to the U.S. war machine, and why we must resist it.
