Helga Zepp-LaRouche, the chairwoman of the Schiller Institute, issued an impassioned plea for viewers to “Wake up…and speak out” about the threat of nuclear annihilation coming from NATO war hawks who are using Ukraine to target Russia. One would have expected, she said, that as we have moved one step closer to nuclear annihilation, there would be voices warning about this in the West. But the change in U.S. policy, to adopt a “first-use nuclear doctrine”, has not been covered; and when Putin responded by saying he now has to reconsider Russia’s policy, U.S. officials such as Defense Secretary Austin and the media accused Putin of “sabre-rattling”, lying that he threatened to use tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine.
She urged that viewers participate in the SI mobilization by:
1.) Supporting her call for accepting Pope Francis’ offer of the Vatican as a neutral venue for negotiations;
2.) Study and circulate the “10 Fundamental Principles” she drafted, as a discussion document, to put in place a new security and development architecture; and
3.) organize for the EIR event on Saturday, Dec. 17, “Peace on Earth, or Humanity’s Doom? The Case for Negotiations.”
