CODEPINK on Feb 17, 2021
As we continue to dismantle the anti-China rhetoric we are uplifting stories through webinars, hosted by CODEPINK co-founder Jodie Evans, featuring guests from across the world that are working towards peace. This week on China Is Not Our Enemy we are excited to be in conversation with Chris Hedges, Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist, author, and TV host. Jodie and Chris will discuss how propaganda drives us to war as well as the true cost of war. As a witness to war and the failings of the US hegemony, capitalism, and imperialism, Chris Hedges has a lot to share.

The UN envoy for Yemen held emergency talks in the rebel-controlled capital Sanaa on Saturday over the key aid port of Hodeidah, where a Saudi-led coalition battles Houthi rebel fighters.

The gruesome beheading of a British aid worker by the ISIS terror group in Syria over the weekend provoked a stern warning from Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron who vowed to “hunt down the murderers” for their “act of pure evil”.
