Schiller Institute Labor Day Conference to Rehearse Summit for Peace and a New Bretton Woods
Aug. 29—This Sept. 5-6 weekend, the International Schiller Institute will be holding one of the most important of its hundreds of international conferences and seminars of the last decade. The two-day international online conference will review the need for, and potential achievements of a proposed summit process among the heads of state of the five permanent UN Security Council members—the United States, China, Russia, France, and the UK. Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed this summit and has organized for it, with the UN General Assembly about to meet in September.
Schiller Institute President Helga Zepp-LaRouche has been appealing to these powers, since early January, to drop confrontation and collaborate through such summits, to create credit to rebuild the world economy from its present crisis, including developing new medical capacities to fight the Covid-19 pandemic in the developing countries. She calls that potential collaboration a new Bretton Woods agreement. Lyndon LaRouche designed such a new Bretton Woods credit agreement and organized for it for decades before his death in 2019.
Helga Zepp-LaRouche, in a webcast Aug. 26, warned of the extremely dangerous escalation of confrontation between the United States, and both China and Russia, that includes aggressive military demonstrations that could go out of control. She called the Labor Day Schiller Institute conference a crucial step in establishing how, and on what urgent missions, these nations can work together for peace and economic recovery and development. The idea, therefore, is to shape the actions of the permanent five members of the UN Security Council.
