China and US workers are inextricably linked by a political economy rife with contradictions. This roundtable will discuss recent events in China including the National People's Congress in March (Xi Jinping's plans for socialist development, and removing the presidency term limit) and the Trump tariffs, as well as US-China relations. The discussion will also attempt to examine ways in which we, as working people in the US and other countries, can help advance the common interests of the working class in China, the US, and beyond. Although difficult, a failure to work together through these contradictions can set the stage for terrible defeats -- such as counter-revolution in the USSR, and weakening of the working class in general. Capitalism is in general crisis. This is a time for the working class to advance towards completing the transition socialism.
