Labor Quote of the Day: Michael Dukakis
“Any stigma and disgrace should be forever removed from the names of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti. We are not here to say whether these men are guilty or innocent. We are here to say that the high standards of justice, which we in Massachusetts take such pride in, failed Sacco and Vanzetti.”
Dukakis was Governor of Massachusetts in 1977, fifty years after the executions of the two Italian anarchists – one a shoemaker, the other a fishmonger – when he signed this proclamation.
