On this day in 1927

On this day in 1927: Ferdinando Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, two Italian immigrants living in Boston, are executed after being framed for a robbery.

Their real crime was being anarchists involved with the vibrant anti-capitalist labor movement of the day.

Long live the rebel spirit of Comrades Sacco and Vanzetti!
