From Venezuela to NATO: The Growing Danger of War
Wednesday April 3
Eckhardt Grammatte Hall
University of Winnipeg
515 Portage Avenue
The North Atlantic Treaty was signed on April 4, 1949, giving rise to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization or NATO. The mission of the original 12-member military alliance was to oppose the Soviet Union. With the dissolution of the USSR on December 26, 1991, one might wonder why NATO still exists, much less why it has grown to 29 members including some which are far removed from the north Atlantic.
Please join us for a public forum on the role of NATO and the threat it presents to world peace. Our keynote speaker is journalist André Vltchek. His presentation will be followed by a question and answer session.
