New #RosenbergMOTD: Monadnock Ledger-Transcript covers RFC Founder Robert Meeropol's July 22nd talk for the 2022 Amos Fortune Forum in Jaffrey, NH.
As the younger son of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, Robert discussed the case for his mother's innocence and the effort to Exonerate Ethel, citing evidence from formerly classified documents that became available in the decades since the Rosenbergs' executions, clearly demonstrating the flimsiness of the U.S. government's case against her.
Meeropol concluded his talk stressing the importance of freely flowing and accessible information to the general public: "We have made the concept of freedom of information a centerpiece of the work we’ve done. If you want to have a functioning democracy, you need to have an informed public.”
(*Slight correction to the article: Robert Meeropol is the sole founder of the RFC, his brother Michael Meeropol is a member of the Advisory Board)
