The fight for the reunification of Korea
For many decades the US has maintained nuclear weapons and tens of thousands of troops in S. Korea. US imperialism has exerted ceaseless provocations and other pressure against North Korea, including embargoes and, a few weeks ago, military exercises a few miles from the North Korean coast. The Korean people, both in the north and south, yearn for reunification after 60 years of division imposed by Washington. The Korean conflict is the single most explosive unresolved national division coming out of World War II.
Come and discuss:
* Why did the US lose the Korean War? Korea was divided by the US in order to halt the socialist revolution in the northern part and to reimpose the rule of landlords and capitalists in the south.
* Why is the US, not N. Korea, widely viewed in both North Korea and South Korea, as the main threat to peace?
* What is the connection between Washington’s long campaign against Korea and the bosses’ offensive in the US against workers’ wages, working conditions, housing, education, democratic rights and social services?

“Ningún pueblo de América Latina es débil, porque forma parte de una familia de doscientos millones de hermanos que padecen las mismas miserias, albergan los mismos sentimientos, tienen el mismo enemigo, sueñan todos un mismo mejor destino y cuentan con la solidaridad de todos los hombres y mujeres honrados del mundo entero.” (Segunda declaración de la Habana)
