by Helga Zepp-LaRouche

Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche addresses the institute’s conference in Berlin.

At the head of the march back to the Dark Ages is the Commonwealth of Virginia, where 45% of the inmates on death row are black, and where associates of Lyndon LaRouche have been given prison sentences averaging 41 years, and as high as 77 hears, for the “crime” of political organizing. A report by Anita Gallagher and Paul Gallagher, two of those so convicted.
