KIM, Brookings Institution, Dr. LI Nan, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), Professor LIM Eunjung, Kongju National University and Dr. ZHAO Tong, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.  The North Korean nuclear issue continues to be overshadowed by international and regional events this year despite the increase in missile testing and reported preparations for a seventh nuclear test. The world remains focused on the war in Ukraine and its implications beyond Europe, further heightening US-China tensions and geostrategic competition. Email RSVP at

37] – William Barry [] would like you to know about watching the OBJECTIONS HEARING: Services LLC (29-RC-288020) Confirmation. You can join the National Labor Relations Board hearings on the American Labor Union (ALU) at Staten Island. Company lawyers is really shifty trying to establish "agency,"--that is, a workers helping to organize suddenly becomes a "representative" of the union. The hearing is fascinating, especially for anyone who has been to the Board already. The next hearings are on Wed., July 20, Thurs., July 21, Fri., July 22 and Sat., July 23 and begin at 10 AM ET. Tune in at

38] – There is a call to Defund Racism: No More Tax-Free $$ for Israeli Settlements and Ethnic Cleansing of Palestinians. This event on Wed., July 20 at noon ET is intended to introduce the #DefundRacism campaign, which targets pro-Israeli organizations disguised as 501c(3) charities that fund Israeli settlements using tax-deductible donations from the United States. These organizations are therefore complicit in the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from places like Sheikh Jarrah, Silwan, South Hebron Hills, and many other places in Palestine. Register at

39] – Sign up for a webinar on Wed., July 20 at 1:30 PM ET: “Escalating War in Europe could Lead to WW III – Can the Peace Movement Hold US / NATO, UK, Russia, Ukraine to Account?” Russia has invaded Ukraine three times.   The "peace movement" has not stopped Russia's war of aggression in Ukraine. Putin has no interest in negotiating.  His track record in Aleppo and Grozny and Moldova and Georgia indicates he does not negotiate.  The peace movement has never stopped Putin in the past.  Good luck to the speakers who will explore ways in which peace can return to the region.  I do not see any way at this time that Putin will call off his invasion or the war crimes being committed on a daily basis. Sign up at  The meeting ID is 348 276 5417 with a passcode of 2022.
