    First Published: 2018

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2017
    An overview of the history that informs North Korea's relations with the United States and "drives its determination never to submit to any American diktat".

  5. Here's what war with North Korea would look like
    A full-blown war with North Korea wouldn't be as bad as you think. It would be much, much worse

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2018
    A look at the chilling logistics and devastating loss of life a full-blown war between the USA and North Korea would cause.
  6. Humanity Imperiled: The Path To Disaster 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    For the first time in the history of the human species, we have clearly developed the capacity to destroy ourselves. That's been true since 1945. It's now being finally recognized that there are more long-term processes like environmental destruction leading in the same direction, maybe not to total destruction, but at least to the destruction of the capacity for a decent existence.
  7. If John Bolton Is Right, Pearl Harbor Was Perfectly Legal
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2018
    Michigan attorney Kary Love explores the legal basis for a pre-emptive attack on North Korea by the USA.
  8. Noam Chomsky And The BBC: A Brief Comparison
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2017
    A recent interview with 88-year-old Noam Chomsky once again demonstrates just how insightful he is in providing rational analysis of Western power and the suffering it generates. By contrast, anyone relying on BBC News receives a power-friendly view of the world, systematically distorted in a way that allows the state and private interests to pursue business as usual.
  9. Other Voices: The Connexions Newsletter - April 30, 2017
    Affirming life, resisting war, reporting UFOs

    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    First Published: 2017
    What do we do when those in power recklessly put the future of the entire planet at risk with their acts of aggression and military provocations, while they ignore the growing disaster of climate change? We fight back and organize, on every level, wherever we are, doing whatever offers the hope of resisting and of building a movement that can stop and overturn the out-of-control monster of late capitalism.
  10. Other Voices: The Connexions Newsletter - May 28, 2017
    Resisting Injustice

    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    First Published: 2017
    In this issue, we look at the relentless persistence of people challenging injustice and entrenched power in places around the world, including Palestine, Korea, China, Canada, and the United States. We spotlight the hunger strike by Palestinian political prisoners languishing in Israeli prisons, workers’ strikes in China, and people in South Korea taking on a corrupt government. In the United States, the Equal Justice Initiative is collecting soil from places where blacks were lynched as a way of remembering their lives and the brutally racist society that murdered them. An article on recent terrorist attacks in Britain asks what underlies ideological violence and sociopathic rage. Ralph Nader asks why people who are supposed to be professional questioners avoid asking hard questions of those in power.

    Official Enemies

    First Published: 2017

    In a series of enlightening and wide-ranging discussions, all published here for the first time, Chomsky radically reinterprets the events of the past three decades, covering topics from foreign policy during Vietnam to the decline of welfare under the Clinton administration. As he elucidates the connection between America's imperialistic foreign policy and the decline of domestic social services, Chomsky also discerns the necessary steps to take toward social change.
  13. The U.S. Pushed North Korea to Build Nukes: Yes or No?
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2017
    Washington's policy toward North Korea for the last 64 years entirely based on the assumption that you can persuade people to do what you want them to do through humiliation, intimidation and brute force.
  14. What Corporate Media Never Tells You about North Korea
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2017
    There is a great deal of propaganda and deliberate misinformation about North Korea, which the public should know. While neocons, a cheering corporate media, and Deep State, rush to war with North Korea, information is the ultimate weapon. For example, did you know that North Korea, China, and India, are the only three nations who have committed to a "no nuclear first" policy.

  16. The World Without Us 
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2007
    A thought experiment to see what would happen to the planet if human beings simply disappeared.
  17. Worse Than North Korea
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    The reality is that we are dealing with a pariah state, no better at this point in its respect for international law and basic human rights (where non-Israelis are concerned), than North Korea. And maybe worse. At least the North Koreans fired their weapon at a South Korean military vessel. The Israeli Defense Force attacked a vessel filled with civilian peace activists, including elderly Holocaust survivors, members of foreign parliaments, and young children.

Mission Connexions exists to support individuals and groups working for freedom and social justice. We work to maintain and make available a record of the theory and practice of people struggling against oppression and for social change. We believe that the more we know about the struggles, victories, and defeats of the past, and about those who took part in them, the better equipped we will be to bring a new world into being. Connexions maintains a physical archive of books and documents, and is engaged in an ongoing project to build and expand an indexed digital archive of documents. We try to feature a wide variety of resources reflecting a diversity of viewpoints and approaches to social change within our overall mandate of support for democracy, civil liberties, freedom of expression, universal human rights, secularism, equality, economic justice, environmental responsibility, and the creation and preservation of community. We are internationalist in our orientation, but as a Canadian-based project we feature an especially extensive collection of Canadian documents and profiles of Canadian activist organizations.
