The Women Against War project "Pathways to Peace" is highly concerned about the proposed upcoming US - North Korea meetings. North Korea expert Maud Easter joins us this morning to discuss the issues.
Easter has served as Northeast Asia Representative for the American Friends Service Committee based in Tokyo, traveled 8 times to South Korea, obtaining information to share with peace activists in the US in support of the South Korean activists struggling on issues of human rights, labor rights, student rights and environmental justice.
She co-founded the Committee for a New Korea Policy, which provided education and advocacy on the US-Korea relationship locally, statewide and, working with other advocates, nationally. Currently as a Women Against War activist, she is providing community education and advocacy in support of a US diplomacy to establish a normalized, non-aggression relationship with North Korea and to support North-South cooperation and reduction of military tension, including establishing a nuclear-free peninsula.
