Monday, November 6, 2017: Averting US War in Korea

Saturday is Veterans' Day, but once it was Armistice Day. The Korean War ended with an armistice 64 years ago; a peace treaty was supposed to be negotiated but never was. As 45 heads to South Korea, we speak with Gwyn Kirk of Women Cross DMZ and Suze Duggan of Hella Organized Bay Area Koreans (HOBAK) about what ordinary Koreans want and the impact of the US military bases in South Korea.
