“If you think by hanging us you can stamp out the labor movement … the movement from which the down-trodden millions, the millions who toil in want and misery, expect salvation — if this is your opinion, then hang us!

“Here you will tread upon a spark, but there and there, behind you and in front of you, and everywhere, flames blaze up.

“It is a subterranean fire. You cannot put it out.” — August Spies, American anarchist and labor organizer, hanged in 1887
