This webinar will introduce you to the extensive reach by the US military into Africa and the ongoing political and economic policies of the US that extract resources, keep the people and nations of Africa impoverished, and threaten forces of progress.

I’m surprised that the CPUSA is hosting this event as it’s a little known topic even among MLs, I feel. They’ve certainly surprised me before. Anyways, let’s see where this leads. Hopefully, others can join.

Regarding Africom, I do know they were among the first clients of ‘Cambridge-Analytica’ style Internet psycho-ops with AlShabaab in Somalia.

Wow, didn’t know that.

Saw this too late. I wonder if we should have an /c/events community that covers all communities. Event flair/tag is automatically posted to the main /c/events from where we can rss directly or we can add a calendar link. I’ll hopefully add this as a request on Lemmy after I think about it’s potential.
