Seven Myths That Sustain the Global Arms Trade with Andrew Feinstein will unpack the myths we are told about "national security". What do we sacrifice for the national security state? What actually makes us safe? What harm does the global arms trade cause to our environment and the integrity of our politics?
CODEPINK's own Danaka Katovich will host a conversation with Andrew Feinstein, the author of The Shadow World and After the Party, which is a detailed account of his time spent within the ANC and the cover up involving the arms deal scandal. Feinstein is Founding Director of Shadow World Investigations (formerly Corruption Watch), an NGO that undertakes path-breaking investigations into cases of grand corruption, corporate malfeasance and militarism, predominantly but not exclusively in the global arms trade.
