Ukranian Crisis: Prologue to World War III?

Ukranian Crisis: Prologue to World War III?
With Guest Speaker, George Wright, Professor Emeritus CSUC Dept of Political Science
Wednesday, February 18, 4pm
At CSUC PAC 144
The current political, economic, and military crisis in Ukraine, beginning in the fall of 2013, has been responsible for not only a civil war but also a new Cold War between the United States/the European Union (the West) and Russia. The ongoing geopolitical situation between the West and Russia has an ominous similarity to developments which led up to the World Wars I and II. Dr. George Wright, former Professor in the CSUC Dept of Political Science, intends to explain the internal situation in Ukraine as well as reasons for the new Cold War and its implications, including prospects for a World War III. The CSUC event will be followed by an informal community conversation at 7pm at the Chico Peace & Justice Center (526 Broadway in downtown Chico), to further explore the issues and consider options for citizen action.
