The Militant Labor Forum presents --

A showing of the documentary by Peter Miller
"Sacco and Vanzetti"
Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were Italian-born
anarchist workers who were framed in 1920 on robbery and murder charges in
Massachusetts and sentenced to the electric chair; they were executed August
23, 1927 in the old Charlestown State Prison. Their cause became known and
supported by workers around the world as an example of courageous struggle
against U.S. class injustice.   The documentary by Peter Miller includes actors John Turturro and Tony Shalhoub reading the prison writings of Sacco and Vanzetti.

 
“Despite the hundreds of interminable nights
and days of imprisonment, with the ghastly thought of execution constantly in
their minds, they have remained as simply true to the workers’ cause as they
were before this infamous frame-up was conceived in the minds of the
Massachusetts reaction. Yes, their persecution has even steeled their
convictions, and has already bound them inseparably with the history of the
American labor movement.”  -- James
Cannon, leader of the International Labor Defense, which fought for the freedom
of Sacco and Vanzetti.
