The Hamilton Coalition To Stop The War is proud to present the entire video of the exceptional lectures of Chris Black and Dr. Atif Kubursi on the subject of “Economic warfare and threats of annihilation against North Korea”, at a public meeting on March 20, 2018, in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. (60 mins.)
Dr. Atif Kubursi is an emeritus professor of economics at McMaster University. Dr. Kubursi was an official for the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia, 2006-8. Kubursi systematically described all the various kinds of economic sanctions that are currently in force against various countries of the world and then showed how each was ineffective in changing the behaviour of targeted governments. Instead, he pointed out, today’s regimes of economic sanctions, most of which are illegal under international law, punish the populations of the targeted countries, often causing more deaths than the wars that follow them. Instead of economic sanctions, Kubursi argued for dialogue and diplomacy among nation states.
