In 1965 Robert Scheer wrote a report on the US's involvement in Vietnam - How The United States Got Involved In Vietnam. It outlines the chronology of postwar US foreign policy in regards to Vietnam and was published through Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions. Highlighting truths and putting to bed misconceptions, Robert Scheer is a true peacemaker. Inspired by Scheer's work, the CODEPINK China Is Not Our Enemy team is working on our own pamphlet about China-US relations in which we hope to stop the impoverishment of Americans knowledge on China.
For China Is Not Our Enemy this week, join CODEPINK cofounder Jodie Evans and special guest Robert Scheer, author and journalist! As we continue to dismantle the anti-China rhetoric in the US and work towards peace, we are engaging with people around the world to uplift stories and spread the truth about China.
