Planning the Sacco & Vanzetti Memorial

New York City, Aug. 23, 2007

New York City's Libertarian Book Club is organizing a memorial for Thur., Aug. 23 in Union Square of the judicial murder of Italian anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, one of the most notorious miscarriages of justice in the history of the US.

We held our first organizing meeting for the memorial two weeks ago; our next meeting will be on Wednesday, June 13, at 7pm in the Muste Room at 339 Lafayette Street (the War Resisters League Building.

Anyone interested in contributing their time and talents to the memorial is invited to attend. The memorial will be preceded by a teach-in at St Joseph's Church (6th Ave at West 4th Street), and include talks, performance, music, etc.

THIS AIN'T JUST HISTORY! Immigrants, anarchists, and others on the "terrorist" hit list are being targeted today by the institutional heirs of the J Edgar Hoover-era FBI and all the others who fomented the Red Scare that led to the deaths of Sacco and Vanzetti. Their deaths marked the beginning of an era of state terror in America that's still going strong.

339 Lafayette is at Lafayette and Bleecker Streets. It's easily accessible by the N, R, F, D, and 6 Subway lines.
