Re: Sacco and Vanzetti Memorial Parade!

Great work!
background info previously posted @ the bimc
23 Aug 2006
Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were two Italian immigrants who came to the United States in 1908 in search of a better life in a free society. After years of working hard at modest jobs for little pay, they were wrongfully accused of murder and robbery, arrested, imprisoned, and executed. Though they had evidence to prove thier innocence, they were the victims of a witch hunt because they were anarchists and immigrants. Sacco and Vanzetti died because they lived in a country and time where immigrants and radicals faced brutal political repression... [follow link]

But,

The fact that they caught with the same guns that were used in the crime ( they hadballistic tests back then) didn't help there cases too much. Even Upton Sinclaire, who championed their cause, admitted in private that Sacco was guilty ( triggerman) and Vanzetti may or may not have been with him when the crimes occurred. Sinclaire's letters about the matter were uncovered in the early 1990's.
