Walking Tour of Anarchist-Connected Historical Sites in Boston
by Jerry Kaplan of the Anarchist Archives Project
Saturday, August 7th, 3:30 pm
Meet in the lobby of the Boston Park Plaza (Arlington St. side)

Rocking the Cradle of Liberty: Sacco, Vanzetti, and the Italian
anarchists.
A walking tour of Anarchist-Connected Historical Sites in Boston.

"We do not argue about whether property is greedy or not, if
masters are good or bad, if the state is paternal or despotic, if laws
are just or unjust, if courts are fair or unfair, if police are merciful or
brutal. When we talk about property, state, masters, government
laws, courts and police, we say only that we don't want any of
them." Luigi Galleani

Radical ideas and activities have long been a part of Boston's rich
history. Beginning in the 1890s Italian immigrants began arriving in
Boston in great numbers. Among them were the anarchists.
Committed to bringing about revolutionary social change, over the
next thirty or so years these Italian radicals organized or participated
in numerous cultural and political activities, from staging plays to
strike actions, culminating in the arrest, trial, and execution of
Sacco and Vanzetti. On this tour, which will begin at the Boston
Common and make its way through Boston's North End, we will
visit a number of sites and buildings connected to the Italian
anarchists and the Sacco-Vanzetti Case. Included will be the
building in which the office of the Sacco and Vanzetti Defense
Committee was located, the site of a police station bombing
anarchists were likely responsible for, and the route of Sacco and
Vanzetti's funeral procession. Along the way we'll also stop at sites
connected to some of the other anarchists who lived and worked in
Boston.
