Frank H. Little (1879 -1/8/17) I Stand for the solidarity of Labour

Today in Labour history, 1st August 1917, labour organiser and IWW leader Frank Little was dragged from his hotel room in Butte, Montana, by masked men and lynched, hung from a railroad trstle. Little had been active in helping to organise a miner's strike against the Anaconda Copper Company. Pinkerton agents were suspected of murdering Little, but his killers were never brought to justice.
We stand on the shoulders of working class giants, and remember that an injury to one is an injury to all.
