On Tuesday, March 15, join CODEPINK Congress & Massachusetts Peace Action for the final event in our SPECIAL SERIES ON FOREIGN POLICY!
No matter how Russia’s bloody invasion of Ukraine ends, the repercussions are enormous and will be felt for many years–perhaps decades–to come. What will be the consequences of a more united and militarized NATO? How will the reshuffling of energy markets affect global politics? Has this destroyed the prospects for nuclear nonproliferation and disarmament? Will there be a stronger Russia/China alliance? How will the Global South be affected? We’ll discuss these questions and many more with two of the greatest global analysts on the left: Dr. Gerald Horne and Walden Bello.
