The Triangle Fire 1911

In the rain and over the broken streets which capitalist graft has rendered filthy and sodden, there passed yesterday the largest body of workers that ever came together in thus country. They were commemorating the murder of 143 of their fellow wage slaves.
That was a demonstration. Now let the real work begin.
Before there can be safety the unclean bunch at City Hall must be driven out. There are in the city ten thousand triangles ready to slaughter the workers in the pursuit of profits.
Yesterday’s gathering will be without avail if the work is allowed to end there. The only thing to do is to go on fighting, go on agitating, go on struggling for better conditions. Otherwise all hope ends at the grave of the murdered.
