Canada has joined the mounting U.S. drumbeat for war with China which is a disastrous path that should not be pursued. What good will come of condemning China as a competitor and enemy that must be crushed? Those shouting for this to happen are the same oligarchs who view all competitors as enemies to their private interests and consider the working class as disposable without rights, a say or control. Other oligarchs manage mega corporations whose wealth is acquired by selling goods made in China and their narrow private interests are not served by the warmongering. It means the contradictions within the ranks of the ruling class are very sharp and none of it favours the interests of the peoples of the world.
The U.S. high tech cartels such as Parallel Wireless, Mavenir, and Altiostar and their political vassals have now made it known that all countries in the U.S.-controlled imperialist system of states must boycott and eliminate all competition from Huawei and its 5G networks and expertise. The U.S. oligarchs’ fear and loathing arise from the reality that their 5G and other technical expertise lag behind Huawei and that China’s economy will soon displace the U.S. economy as the largest in the world. They concocted the anti-Iran charges against Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou as part of the campaign to stop Huawei from expanding into “their” territory, including Canada, and competing with “their” companies.

The U.S. has entered into several known military agreements to surround and threaten China, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and indeed all the peoples in the Asia Pacific region. Canada is participating in carrying out these agreements which bolster active U.S. military presence in the region. Already it stations tens of thousands of troops and war materiel and equipment in Japan, south Korea and several south Pacific islands. The U.S. military regularly sends warships and planes to prowl the waters surrounding China and the Korean Peninsula to probe and test the defences of both countries. Canada was the first U.S. ally to join it when it sailed the navy frigate HMCS Winnipeg alongside the USS Dewey in a war convoy through the Taiwan Strait just off the coast of the Chinese mainland October 14-15.

The following war treaties and arrangements of the ruling elite are directed against the interests of the peoples everywhere, including those countries where the alliances originate, and must be sternly opposed and rejected. The struggle to Make Canada a Zone for Peace and to establish an anti-war government requires the people demanding the dismantling of all these war alliances and preparations including NATO and NORAD, and the removal of Canada from the U.S. war economy.
