"Long live anarchy!" were Sacco's last words
Their cries of freedom were supressed and they were never heard
Guilty only of their beliefs, and their foreign births
No solid concrete evidence of being guilty...cause they weren't
In an atmosphere of instense hostility
The system made it clear - because of your beliefs you'll receive no pity
In defiance of worldwide protest and appeals
They were electrocuted, their only crimes were their ideals
"Only with liberty can men rise and be complete
We're the black cats and the terror of many" to all oppressors we bring defeat!
They held true to their beliefs until the bitter end
Their pointless fucking execution was some kind of sick revenge!
Fuck You!

    General CommentWell that argument is yes and no. Yes, their anarchistic beliefs and foriegn descent DID play a MAJOR role in their harsh persecution, and at the TIME there was no completely consistent evidence, but it was found in 1961 that Sacco had killed one of the victims, although Vanzetti was more or less an accesory only.
