"Understanding the War Industry - The Local and the Hopeful" with Christian Sorensen

 

Christian Sorensen gave an amazingly, informative talk on May 2nd. He provided an overview of how the military-industrial-congressional complex works, invaluable information about North Carolina war industries that could be converted, and some ideas on how citizens can counter the hold the defense industry has on our economy and foreign policy. You can watch the webinar here. Thanks to Massachusetts Peace Action  and Veterans for Peace for live-streaming the event and to Massachusetts Peace Action for posting it on their YouTube Channel.
