ILPS Commission 13
Anita Gurumurthy spoke at a two-part webinar series titled 'Research and Destruction: The Role of Science in Waging Imperialist War and Fighting for Just Peace', organized by Commission 13 of the International League of Peoples' Struggle (ILPS).
This webinar series highlighted the ways in which scientific institutions utilize their knowledge and resources to expand systems of warfare for imperialist nations, who in turn only intend to use these systems to further their own capital accumulation. The webinar also highlighted the effects that this has on oppressed classes, nations and people and what an alternative science for the people could look like.
Anita spoke about the role of the surveillance tech industry in maintaining the security apparatus of fascist regimes during the second part of the webinar, on Aug 30th 2020.
