The story of the U.S. and the Korean Peninsula continues to change at a rapid pace. We saw (and for now still seem to have) an "Olympic Truce", and the hope of a possible meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un. Lurking in the weeds is a series of personnel shifts in the White House diplomacy regime that may bring everyone back to a hawkish footing. We dare not take our eyes off of the proceedings - thus the next PASMC meeting will once again focus on that part of the world.
With the help of south bay activist, writer and lecturer Dr. Sharat G. Lin, we will try to get caught up with what has happened, what it means for the region and what could come. On Sunday, April 8, Sharat will give a talk and visual presentation entitled "Prospects for Peace With North Korea."
North Korea is perhaps the single most demonized and least understood country on Earth. After 70 years of diplomatic isolation, relentless sanctions, a devastating war and apparent threats of nuclear confrontation, what makes peace and reconciliation possible after a round of Olympic diplomacy? This is a question that Sharat Lin has asked and on which he will share his thoughts on April 8. He has traveled to North Korea to see firsthand what the country is really like, and he presents an eye-opening picture of a place few Americans have ever seen. Sharat will also explore a viable road to peace with North Korea.
Dr. Sharat Lin is a research fellow and past president of the San Jose Peace and Justice Center. He is also on the Board of Advisors of the Initiative for Equality. He writes and lectures on global political economy, labor migration, social movements, and public health. Sharat is also an educator, community organizer, photojournalist, artist, and peace dancer.
We invite you to join us on Sunday, April 8, for an evening of unique perspectives and ideas on the "Prospects for Peace with North Korea." The UUSM is wheelchair accessible.
Free, contributions welcome.
