The name of Vanzetti, like that of his comrade Sacco, resonates — it marks the biting point where revolutionary activism and state repression come to blows. For Sacco and Vanzetti were two Italian anarchist immigrants who were convicted of murdering a factory paymaster with the flimsiest of evidencel; they received the death penalty and were killed in 1927 basically just for being anarchists. This pamphlet, written in prison, throws a little light on the life of a man who was much more than a poor fish peddler, fighting for liberty and destined for the fame of a martyr.
