Webinar On Foreign Bases 3/21

The United States spends some $170 billion every year on military bases and other military presence in other countries, but this presence and its cost often go unnoticed in the United States.

Anthropologist researchers David Vine (American University) and Catherine Lutz (Brown University) will help you understand the far-flung and massive U.S. military presence in more than 100 countries, and how to obtain information you can use in the current budget debates, in solidarity with impacted communities in other countries, and to understand material expression of empire.
