3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
For our October meeting, we will return to the situation on the Korean Peninsula. Eric See of the Peace Action national office will present the various angles facing the U.S. and the world.
They include two bellicose governments engaging in a war of words no more winnable than an actual war with the worst possible weapons. They also include the role of other actors in the region, and how they might help raise or lower the temperature. And there is also the possibility of a diplomatic solution which affords North Korea some dignity, and its neighbors, the U.S. and the world a measure of hope for avoiding such a war – to say nothing of the anxiety of wondering what will happen next.
Free, contributions welcome.
Presented by Peace Action of San Mateo County

Please join us for a multimedia talk by a docent from the Asian Art Museum. Before jet planes and smartphones, merchants and pilgrims spent months traveling over perilous land and sea routes to carry luxury goods and new ideas thousands of miles across lost civilizations. Accompany the travelers over high mountain passes and parched deserts on their voyages of discovery and exchange.
