The Government is Responsible

The guide of the Italian workers in the fight for their liberation, the leader of the Italian Communist Party in its fight at the head of the workers, was struck by an assassin’s hand. But this assassin’s hand did not work on its own. It was guided in its vile gesture by the campaign of hatred supported hour by hour, day by day by Italian reaction in its entirety; by the campaign of hatred and division of the workers carried out to the bitter end by the reactionary forces, and expressed by a government in the service of foreigners. All workers know this. All workers demand that we get to the bottom of this.
