Dan Cohen comes on the show for an update on the protests in Hong Kong. Though positioned as a popular pro-democracy movement, some of the protest leaders have alarming ties to American think tanks like the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, which may be trying to influence the movement in a direction that will benefit U.S. interests in the end. Cohen says the protesters certainly have good grounds for their outrage, but that we should be careful fully supporting a cause whose motives and aims aren’t exactly clear.

Discussed on the show:

  • “Behind a made-for-TV Hong Kong protest narrative, Washington is backing nativism and mob violence” (The Grayzone)
  • “Joshua: Teenager vs. Superpower (2017)” (IMDb)
  • Colour revolution
  • “Watch the film the Israel lobby didn’t want you to see” (Electronic Intifada)
