First Friday Film: The Coming War with China

The November First Friday Film night exposes the major US military build-up – including nuclear weapons – that is under way in Asia and the Pacific with the purpose of confronting China. In “The Coming War on China” John Pilger raises the alarm on an under-reported and dangerous provocation. A nuclear war between the United States and China is not only imaginable but a current 'contingency', says the Pentagon.
Filmed over two years across five potential flashpoints in Asia and the Pacific, THE COMING WAR ON CHINA reveals the build-up to war on more than 400 US military bases that encircle China in a 'perfect noose'. Pilger's exposé of the atrocities still being committed there is just part of this far-reaching documentary about the relationship between the US and China since World War II, in light of recent inflammatory statements made by President Trump. In key interviews from Pentagon war planners to members of China's confident new political class, Pilger's film challenges the notion and propaganda of China as a new 'enemy'.
After the film, we will have a discussion with actions working to defuse the situation.
Before the film, we will have announcements regarding upcoming events and actions for peace and social justice.
