  • Title: Sacco and Vanzetti
    Descriptive info: .. HOME.. |.. MEETINGS.. DOCUMENTS.. HISTORY.. NEWS.. BIBLIOGRAPHY.. ABOUT US.. PHOTOS.. MUSIC.. LINKS.. Welcome to the Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Society Webpage!.. The year 2007 marked the 80th anniversary of the execution of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti.. The previous year, 2006, a dedicated group of activists carried out a parade from the Stony Brook Park in Jamaica Plain to the Forest Hills Cemetery where the bodies of Sacco & Vanzetti were cremated after their execution.. (To watch a 5-min clip prepared by RAI TV Italy.. click here.. ).. We will be out on the streets of Boston every year around August 23 and besides marching and demonstrating we hope to establish the foundation for a monument to Sacco and Vanzetti in the North End of Boston.. Read more.. Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Society Mission.. The Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Society exists to preserve the memory of Sacco and Vanzetti's struggle to radically change society.. We want to educate our neighbors about Massachusetts' radical history, and draw connections between the struggles of Sacco and Vanzetti and similar struggles today.. We stand against the death penalty and political persecution as well as the persecution and scapegoating of immigrants.. Sacco and Vanzetti Yesterday and Today's Immigrants.. Dorotea Manuela, activist for workers rights, was unable to address the event on August 26, 2012.. You can, however, read here the speach she had prepared for the occassion.. "(.. ) How strangely reminiscent are today?s events.. Arabs, Latin@s, Haitians and Caribbeans are kidnapped from their streets and confined in secret prisons where they rot without hearing or trial.. We do not even need the sham trials of Sacco and Vanzetti.. In addition, our xenophobes in Congress and the press announce that yesterday?s Italians are today?s Latino, Haitian and Caribbean immigrants.. They come here, we are told, to draw our resources, to burden our schools, to overwhelm our services and to collect welfare.. Paradoxically these "lazy immigrants" are taking all of our jobs.. ".. Message from Chuck Turner to the 7th Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Day in Boston.. 08/26/2012 [DOCUMENTS] -.. USP Hazelton, WV.. - Thank you and your committee for your work in using the state murder of Sacco and Vanzetti to remind us of our continuous responsibility to demand a governing and judicial process in this country built on a foundation of sanity and justice.. The recent horrendous conviction of Tarek Mehanna for exercising his first amendments rights is a tragic reminder that the clouds of fascism and repression in this country are growing darker and more ominous every day.. We must increase the brightness of our light and the volume of our demand in order to wake our fellow citizens from their deep an dangerous sleep.. In the Spirit of Peace and Love, Chuck Turner.. 2013: Eighth Annual March and Rally to Commemorate Sacco and Vanzetti.. The Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Committee observed the eighty-sixth anniversary of the executions of Sacco and Vanzetti with its eighth annual march and rally.. This year's march was once again co-sponsored by the local branch of the Industrial Workers of the World and began with a rally at the Boston Common Visitor's Center.. We want to thank all our speakers, performers, everyone who helped out, as well as everyone who attended.. To read the Boston City Council proclamation.. To see photo album.. The Sacco and Vanzetti Funeral Footage in Chronological Order.. Not one of the many versions of the Sacco and Vanzetti funeral footage found on the internet appears in its correct chronological order.. That the sequence in which the shots appear is not quite right is apparent from even a casual viewing of the film.. Additionally, while a number of shots are out of sequence, others are repeated in ways that make little sense.. Both the order and repetition of the shots that make up the funeral footage can be attributed to their having been taken from same source which spliced together surviving footage from two copies of the original, but badly deteriorated, film.. La Marcia del Dolore / The March of Sorrow.. The Funeral of Sacco and Vanzetti.. Today various versions of film footage that show the funeral of Sacco and Vanzetti can be easily found on the internet.. Practically all owe their origin to a single source, the silent film originally titled,.. "The Good Shoemaker and the Poor Fishpeddler.. ".. (It should be noted that this phrase is commonly attributed to Vanzetti and is often used to identify the two men.. But it should be emphatically noted that it was never said or used by Vanzetti and that it critically mischaracterizes the two men -Sacco was a very skilled shoe worker: not a shoe maker; Vanzetti sold fish for less than 6 months of his life.. ).. Saturday, August  ...   that my father, an Italian immigrant shoemaker, identified with Sacco, an Italian immigrant shoe trimmer.. My father?s expression and tone denoted sadness marked with a fear I could not then understand.. I later learned he felt threatened by the ill will many Americans displayed toward Italians as a result of that case.. Monument in the North End against intolerance, prejudice and hatred.. The Metro Boston Edition of December 6, 2010 on its front page includes the headlines: "North End memorial to murder? - Group trying to erect a plaque to two men convicted in the '20s.. - Sacco and Venzetti (sp) case is infamous".. Then on the full page of a small article the reporter, Justin Rice, continues the stereotypes via a sub-heading: "- Group of anarchists trying to memorialize convicted killers in the North End".. The facts are that Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti indeed where convicted for the killing of Parmenter and Berardelli in a robbery in Braintree, but then and now virtually the entire world doubted that they were the real killers in the case.. Historical consensus indicates that instead they were executed because they were anarchists and Italian immigrants.. Prejudice and judicial manipulation were in the end their executioners.. Sacco and Vanzetti Buttons.. The Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Society printed a limited amount of buttons with the images of Sacco and Vanzetti, with the text "August 23, 1927" on top and "www.. saccoandvanzetti.. org" at the bottom.. They were first released during the march and rally of last August 23, 2009.. The size is 2 inches.. The solidarity contribution requested is $3 for both buttons.. Please include $.. 88 for shipping for 2 buttons.. Send us a check or money order to "Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Society, PO Box 381323, Cambridge, MA 02238-1323" and we will mail them to you..

Nearly 40 people braved the Boston cold on Saturday, December 1st.. 2007, to unveil and rededicate a historical marker for Sacco and Vanzetti in the North End.. The plaque was reinstalled at 256 Hanover Street, the place where the Sacco and Vanzetti Defense Committee functioned from 1925 to 1927.. An original plaque had been installed there in 1976, during the bicentennial of the U.. independence, as part of the Freedom Trail.. Early in the 80s, however, the plaque disappeared.. The Sacco and Vanzetti Society formed this year to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the execution of Sacco and Vanzetti decided to correct this situation and now there is a new plaque in place with the original wording and marking as it was in 1976.. To view a Windows Media video (9mb) of the event.. Pictured is Jake Carman from the Boston Anti-Authoritarian Movement.. The Monument to Sacco and Vanzetti that Never Saw the Streets of Boston.. Boston, July 15, 2007.. In 1997 (exactly August 23) a 10-years younger Thomas Menino received as Mayor of Boston a relief of Sacco and Vanzetti sculpted by the famous author of the Mt.. Rushmore National Memorial depicting the first 150 years of independent history of the U.. with the likeness of Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln.. The artist's name was (John) Gutzon de la Mothe Borglum.. The massive project in Mt.. Rushmore sharply contrasts with the 7-foot size of the Sacco and Vanzetti relief that reads:.. "What I wish more than all in this last hour of agony is that our case and our fate may be understood in their real being and serve as a tremendous lesson to the forces of freedom, that our suffering and death will not have been in vain.. What happened to that monument?.. SVCS Postal address:.. P.. O.. Box 381323, Cambridge, MA 02238-1323.. Email: info[@]saccoandvanzetti.. org.. Visits:.. 169460..

  • Title: Sacco and Vanzetti
    Descriptive info: 26/08/2012 - USP Hazelton, WV.. 24/07/2012 - "When I was ten years old, I asked my father about Sacco and Vanzetti.. Message from Chuck Turner from behind bars for the Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Day 2011.. 21/08/2011 - "I regret not being able to be with you physically; however, I am certainly with you in spirit.. Let me begin my reflections by commending the organizers for continuing to keep the focus on the horrible tragedy that occurred when Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were executed for a crime they did not commit.. Fortunately, the work of activists over decades finally resulted in Governor Dukakis acknowledging the truth and clearing their names.. However, this important work does not eliminate the fact that their lives were taken by a criminal justice system seeking revenge rather than justice.. As we gather together today to acknowledge the tragic error of the government of that era in their unwillingness to seek justice, the question we must answer is what are we doing to stop the reoccurrence of such governmental injustice today, whether lives are being physically ended or destroyed through incarceration.. What good does it do to call attention to the tragedy that occurred to Sacco and Vanzetti, if we do not organize to stop the present day governmental victimization of our brothers and sisters.. Socialist Perspective on Sacco and Vanzetti.. 21/08/2011 -.. Presentation by Kevin Dwire, Socialist Workers Party candidate for City Council At-Large, at the Sacco and Vanzetti Rally, August 21, 2011.. We are here today not to mourn, but to honor Sacco and Vanzetti.. The history of the struggles of working men and women here and around the world is one that the capitalist class hopes we will forget, and their hired hands work overtime to cover it up and "educate" us that their history is our history.. But it is not only the events of 1927 that brings us here today.. It is the living class struggle of 2011 ? the growing economic depression and the continuing war by the owners of capital to make working people pay for their crisis.. It is a war being waged in factory and field, a campaign against working people wherever we toil, to drive down our wages and so called benefits, to take away those few extra crumbs we have been able to wrestle from them over the years.. It is a war on our democratic rights as they field an army of cops and snoops against our class, our unions, and our political organizations.. Yesterday Sacco and Vanzetti; now Tarek Mehanna.. 30/08/2010 -.. Speech by Laila Murad from the Tarek Mehanna Defense Committee at the Sacco Vanzetti Memorial 2010.. Today many of us have been reminded of the case of Sacco and Vanzetti.. Theirs is a case that has been referred to as "the case that never goes away" and it is indeed a case that we saw in the years before it even began and one that we have seen countless times in the 83 years since.. Over the decades we have seen the FBI?s COINTELPRO attack on communities to crush movements of struggle and dissent such as the Black Panther Party, Black Liberation Army, Puertro Rican Independence Movement, American Indian Movement and Earth Liberation Movement.. Over the past 10 or so years, we have seen the War on Terror targeted primarily Muslims and people of Arab and South Asian decent, as well anarchists and radical environmentalists.. How to honor victims of political violence.. Commemoration of Sacco and Vanzetti Speech by Pasqualino Colombaro.. It was a very fortunate intuition six years ago to form a Committee for the commemoration of Sacco and Vanzetti.. Because the very image that the story of the two Anarchists evokes, is replete with valuable teachings and meanings for all those who today dare to struggle for a free and egalitarian way of life for all.. Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were two ordinary human beings, two workers, two immigrants from Italy like millions of others.. With one difference: they had the spark of critical consciousness awoken within their hearts.. They were self-professed Anarchist labor and community activists who had the misfortune to gravitate around a Massachusetts Italian Anarchist enclave headed by Luigi Galleani, an Italian Anarchist intellectual who passionately and convincingly advocated for the propaganda of the deed, i.. e.. : targeted violent action against the system of oppression, which included bomb throwing and assassinations.. Chuck Turner's speech at the Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Day 2010.. Brothers and Sisters, the immigrants in this country aren't the enemy.. The reality is, from my perspective, immigrants are the victims.. Why are the immigrants here? The immigrants are here in this day and age, the immigrants are coming into this country, because our country, our military forces are enabling the business community of this country - of this country and other countries - to go throughout the world raping and pillaging the economies of those countries.. We have to understand that the immigrant "problem" is not an immigrant problem.. It is a problem of imperialism.. It's a problem of the unjust use of force to control the economies of other countries.. 2010 Boston City Council Resolution Regarding Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti Commemoration Day.. This resolution offered by Boston City Councilor Chuck Turner on August 4, 2010 read partially:.. "Whereas, These historical events are an integral part of the history of Boston and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and constitute a nefarious precedent that we must strive not to repeat; and.. Whereas, On August 23, 2010, the Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Society is holding a gathering at Copley Square, and a march to the North End ending with a rally there.. Therefore be it.. Resolved, That the Boston City Council herein assembled extends its admiration and congratulations to the Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Society, and in honor of its many contributions does hereby declare August 23, 2010 Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Day in the City of Boston.. To see a picture of the actual resolution.. Howard Zinn: Anarchism Shouldn't Be a Dirty Word.. 08/02/2010 -.. An interview with Ziga Vodovnik, CounterPunch, May 2008.. Howard Zinn: "I am an anarchist, and according to anarchist principles nation states become obstacles to a true humanistic globalization.. In a certain sense the movement towards globalization where capitalists are trying to leap over nation state barriers, creates a kind of opportunity for movement to ignore national barriers, and to bring people together globally, across national lines in opposition to globalization of capital, to create globalization of people, opposed to traditional notion of globalization.. In other words to use globalization -- it is nothing wrong with idea of globalization -- in a way that bypasses national boundaries and of course that there is not involved corporate control of the economic decisions that are made about people all over the world.. Saying goodbye to my friend Howard Zinn.. 31/01/2010 -.. By Alice Walker, Globe Correspondent.. On hearing the news of his death.. Me: Howie, where did you go?.. Howie: What do you mean, where did I go? As soon as I died, I went back to Boston.. I met Howard Zinn in 1961, my first year at Spelman College in Atlanta.. He was the tall, rangy, good-looking professor that many of the girls at Spelman swooned over..

Erich M?hsam (6 April 1878 in Berlin, Germany ? 10 July 1934 Oranienburg Concentration Camp) (also spelled Muehsam or Muhsam) was a German-Jewish anarchist, writer, poet, dramatist and cabaret performer.. Both a prolific poet, dramatist and a Bohemian intellectual, M?hsam emerged at the end of World War I as one of the leading agitators for a federated Bavarian Soviet Republic.. However, M?hsam achieved international prominence during the years of the Weimar Republic (1919-1933) for works which satirized Adolf Hitler and condemned Nazism before Hitler came to power in 1933..

Their story has been told in books, articles, and songs, but perhaps never so engagingly as in the historical novel, THE PASSION OF SACCO AND VANZETTI ? A NEW ENGLAND LEGEND, by Howard Fast (New York: Blue Heron Press, 1953).. Comunicato stampa.. Sacco e Vanzetti vivono!.. A fine agosto verra' commemorato a Boston l'ottantesimo anniversario dell'esecuzione di Nicola Sacco e Bartolomeo Vanzetti.. La loro condanna a morte nel 1927 e' passata alla storia come una delle piu' obbrobriose farse giudiziarie mai commesse da una corte di un paese democratico.. Dagli atti del processo emerge infatti molto mal celato il pregiudizio della corte contro gli immigrati italiani e in particolar modo contro quegli immigrati che erano animati da chiari convincimenti politici di tipo anarchico..

Sacco and Vanzetti on YouTube.. There is a selection of independent videos posted on YouTube in memory of Sacco and Vanzetti in different languages..

The Community Church of Boston is proud to have one of three existing castings of the Sacco-Vanzetti memorial bas relief by noted sculptor Gutzon Borglum, creator of the Mount Rushmore presidential sculpture in South Dakota.. The sculpture is on display in Lothrop Auditorium on the second floor of the Community Church Center at 565 Boylston Street in Copley Square, Boston..

Boston Globe, January 17, 1999.. North End.. A small patch of land in DeFillipo Park on Hull Street likely will be the site of a memorial to Sacco and Vanzetti, Italian immigrants executed in 1927 for the murder of a paymaster and guard during a robbery in Braintree in 1920.. Members of the Sacco and Vanzetti Memorial Committee met recently with Parks Commissioner Justine Liff, who told them she had no objections to a memorial in the city-owned park that includes basketball and handball courts and a playground.. The next step for the committee, said parks department spokeswoman Mary Hines, is to submit a written proposal, or concept paper, to the Parks Commission which has final approval.. La Salute ? in Voi: the Anarchist Dimension.. By Robert D'Attilio.. William G.. Thompson, the chief counsel for Sacco and Vanzetti during the final three years of their legal struggle, has told us in a very moving memoir that he had been asked by Vanzetti to come to Charlestown Prison just hours before their execution.. Vanzetti had come to respect the integrity and the tremendous efforts that Thompson-a Brahmin, a conservative, a lawyer -had made against the legal system he believed in and upheld, to defend two anarchists who had been trying to bring that very system down.. Before dying, Vanzetti wanted to thank Thompson for his efforts and to assure him that, though they had not succeeded, they were deeply appreciated.. In the course of his remarks Vanzetti strongly reasserted the absolute innocence of Sacco and himself in the Braintree affair, and he also told Thompson that.. he now realized more clearly than ever the grounds of suspicion against him and Sacco.. but that no allowance had been made for his fear as a radical and almost as an outlaw and that in reality he was convicted on evidence which would not have convicted him had he not been an anarchist, so that he was in a very real sense dying for his cause.. He said that it was a cause for which he was prepared to die.. Proclamation by Gov.. Michael S.. Dukakis of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti Memorial Day.. Therefore, I, Michael S.. Dukakis, Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.. hereby proclaim Tuesday, August 23, 1977, "NICOLA SACCO AND BARTOLOMEO VANZETTI MEMORIAL DAY";.. and declare, further, that any stigma and disgrace should be forever removed from the names of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, from the names of their families and descendants, and so.. call upon all the people of Massachusetts to pause in their daily endeavors to reflect upon these tragic events, and draw from their historic lessons the resolve to prevent the forces of intolerance, fear, and hatred from ever again uniting to overcome the rationality, wisdom, and fairness to which our legal system aspires.. Boston accepts Sacco and Vanzetti memorial (1997).. Others, too, felt a sense of closure in the rare book room at Boston Public Library on Saturday when the city's Italian-American mayor and the state's Italian-American acting governor removed a red cloth from the seven-foot sculpture.. With that gesture, acting Gov.. Paul Cellucci and Mayor Tom Menino (see photo) formally accepted the piece.. Menino talked about fairness and about learning, and Cellucci talked about tolerance.. Sacco and Vanzetti by Howard Zinn.. Fifty years after the executions of Italian immigrants Sacco and Vanzetti, Governor Dukakis of Massachusetts set up a panel to judge the fairness of the trial, and the conclusion was that the two men had not received a fair trial.. This aroused a minor storm in Boston.. One letter, signed John M.. Cabot, U.. Ambassador Retired, declared his ?great indignation? and pointed out that Governor Fuller?s affirmation of the death sentence was made after a special review by ?three of Massachusetts? most distinguished and respected citizens?President Lowell of Harvard, President Stratton of MIT and retired Judge Grant.. The mexican newspaper La Jornada printed an Spanish translation of this article on August 23, 2007.. On the same article they announced that Howard Zinn's book, "A Power Government Cannot Suppress" will be published in Spanish in Mexico by La Jornada in the near future..

Syracuse University Library Opens New Exhibit on the Execution of Sacco & Vanzetti:.. 30/08/2007 - Amidst a seeming wave of domestic terrorism, the 1920 murder of two payroll guards in Braintree, Massachusetts, exploded into what could arguably be described as the trial of the century.. Earlier that year, a plot had been exposed in which thirty bombs, disguised as free samples from the Gimbels department store, had been sent to such pillars of American capitalism as J.. Morgan and John D.. Rockefeller, as well as to U.. Attorney General A.. Mitchell Palmer.. Palmer was responsible for the prosecution and deportation of thousands of radicals, including labor organizers, peace advocates, and other ?undesirables.. ? Although the plot had not succeeded for lack of sufficient postage, in the resulting atmosphere of shock, fear, and repression, two working-class Italian Americans with anarchist connections, Bartolomeo Vanzetti and Nicola Sacco, were not only accused of the crime, but also became scapegoats in the reaction to the supposed threat of the combined forces of labor unrest, new waves of immigration, and the advance of the ?red menace? that followed the end of World War I.. This exhibition both commemorates the eightieth anniversary of the execution of the much-mythologized ?good shoemaker and a poor fish-peddler,? and celebrates the 1967 installation of the Ben Shahn mural at the heart of the Syracuse University campus.. It is not our purpose to determine the guilt or innocence of the defendants in the Sacco-Vanzetti trial.. Rather, we wish to highlight not only the creative response to the perceived injustice of the prosecution and sentence, but also the decades of continuing protest over what Katherine Anne Porter described as ?the never-ending wrong..

The plaque was one of a number of historical markers put up by the City of Boston in 1976 and was located along the Freedom Trail.. This was the text of the plaque:.. Sacco and Vanzetti Defense Committee In may 1920, two Italian immigrants were arrested for the murder of two payroll guards in South Braintree.. A group of friends and fellow anarchists organized a defense committee for the accused men, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti.. For the next seven years the committee struggled to free the two, whose cause became a passionate controversy the world over..
