Exonerate Ethel Rosenberg: A Presentation by Ethel's Son Robert Meeropol

Robert Meeropol, younger son of Ethel Rosenberg, talks about the nationwide campaign to gather support for his family's request to President Obama to exonerate Ethel. Robert will discuss new evidence showing his mother was not a spy, and the government knew it but executed her anyway, in a politically motivated act intended to intimidate dissenters at the height of the McCarthy Era.

Robert will provide an update about the campaign's progress, and highlight why an exoneration would send an important message repudiating the rampant hate-mongering happening in this country today targeting Muslims, immigrants, Black Lives Matter activists, and other groups.
