- China: where is it headed? towards socialism or capitalism? resisting imperialism? Reportback from an activist delegation
- What is the political orientation of China's amazing development program? This was one topic debated during the July 2017 people-to-people activist delegation sponsored by the National Immigrant Solidarity Network, affiliated with the Alliance for Global Justice. The group engaged in an unusual range of political discussions with the Chinese: a Maoist discussion group, a successful capitalist entrepreneur and advocates of the official policy of "socialism with Chinese characteristics."
- The delegation also visited two rural cooperatives and a self-organized migrant workers village. On July 7, the program included the museum commemorating the war of resistance to Japanese imperialism on the 80th anniversary of the full-scale Japanese invasion. Another visit was to a new museum devoted to learning about the 200,000 Chinese "comfort women" or sex slaves during World War II.
- Presentations will be given by delegation members Duncan McFarland, CCDS national coordinating committee and, Lee Siu Hin member of United for Peace and Justice steering committee. Full discussion will follow.
- Lee Siu Hin, organizer of the delegation, is the founder of the China-US Activist Solidarity Project, a new program of people-to-people solidarity and exchange between the US and China. He works and travels between the two countries.
