Audio from a webinar sponsored by Workers World Party:

Rather than change course from the disastrous policies of former President Donald J. Trump, the Biden administration has doubled down on the deadliest failures of the U.S. COVID response. The U.S. capitalist state is refusing to put modest safety protocols and lockdown procedures in place despite the skyrocketing infection rate of the even more deadly and contagious Delta variant.

Meanwhile, President Biden and other U.S. lawmakers are hell bent on blaming the COVID catastrophe on China. The U.S. deliberately sabotaged a collective effort to learn more about the origins of the novel coronavirus by calling for the World Health Organization to focus solely on the laboratory in Wuhan, China.

China has asked, why not also look at Fort Dietrich and 200 other U.S. labs? Why not investigate the earlier outbreaks before Wuhan in Italy, Spain, and France? Why is the U.S. choosing competition and protecting patents over global cooperation? What is billionaire Bill Gates' role in all of this?

Join revolutionaries in the U.S. and China for this necessary pushback on lab leak theory and the Cold War being waged against China and the entire global working class.

With Sara Flounders and Siu Hin Lee, co-editors of Capitalism on a Ventilator: the Impact of COVID-19 in China the U.S.

There are 2 versions of this webinar on the R4A server. Both are the full webinar (01:08:35), lightly edited for pacing and content, mostly removal of "um, uh, you know" and false starts. I didn't add my own intro/outro to either version.

Sui Hin Lee has a thick accent that at times can make him difficult to understand. Not bad overall, though.

The moderator is Ted Kelly of the Philadelphia branch of Workers World Party.

Version 1: A -24 LUFS Mp3 optimized for RADIO PLAY.

Version 2: A -19 LUFS Mp3 optimized for downloading onto a computer or mobile device for INDIVIDUAL USE. Identical content to Version 1, but a louder file encoded at a lower bitrate so it takes up less space.


Would you like to:

1. Download all or part of the Essential Dissent archive in a few clicks via OneDrive?

2. Access my audio in .wav format, which is the highest quality and preferred if you do your own edits for later conversion to a different format?

3. Download episodes that have disappeared from R4A?

4. Access extras such as conference journals which give more detailed information about the presenters, panels and sponsoring organizations?

5. Continue doing all of the above even if R4A becomes defunct?

Send an email to wvought at gmail dot com, requesting the archive link. Include Essential Dissent Archive in the subject line.

If you’re affiliated with a radio station, please tell me your radio station’s call letters and the name of your show. If you’re a podcaster, please tell me the name of your podcast. And if you’re an end user who just wants to stream or download some interesting audio, that’s cool too.

The link will give you access to the Essential Dissent archive (including all subsequent episodes) for as long as the archive is available on OneDrive. (If I ever have reason to move the archive I'll send you the new link.)

A big advantage of this system is that if R4A ever stops working or vanishes altogether, I’ll still be able to post new episodes to the archive, and you’ll still be able to download them. In that case I'll send a notification when I post a new episode (but you can opt out of receiving notifications at any time).

You are welcome to share the link with others, but since I will then not have their email address they will not receive notifications, nor will I be able to send them a new link should that become necessary. It’s best to have them contact me to be added to my email list.

No spam, no fee, no BS, and I’ll remove your email address from my list upon request.
