Chicago police wounded and killed several workers during a labor strike at McCormick Reaper works.
Did you see this? There is a labor rally in Haymarket square in protest of these workers being beaten by the police.
Let's go to it!
Several labor radicals organized a protest or rally that was supposed to be peaceful. During the rally, the police came to break it up and send everyone home.
Everyone needs to go home now.
This peaceful rally turned into a riot after someone in the crowd threw a bomb at the police, killing 7 police officers and one citizen while wounding many.
Eight labor radicals were arrested and convicted as a result of this riot, for supposedly having connections to the bombing. They were labeled as anarchists and were sentenced to death in a controversial trial. The trial was said to be biased and no real evidence was provided.
I hereby sentence all of you to death for your crimes.
Those who were convicted and sentenced to death were hanged.
