Proposed program for Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration in August 2007
sv_2.jpgAfter a few meetings initiated by last year's Sacco and Vanzetti Parade from the Stony Brook Park to the Forest Hills Cemetery, the organizers of this year's commemoration events have come up with a proposed program.

The society is open to all those individual and organizations that believe that it is important to keep the memory of these two working class anarchist organizers framed up and killed by the State of Massachusetts on August 23, 1927.
