excerpt from a letter written by Albert Parsons after the Haymarket Riot

Read the excerpt from a letter written by Albert Parsons after the Haymarket Riot.

“There was no evidence that any one of the eight doomed men knew of, or advised, or abetted the Haymarket tragedy. But what does that matter? The privileged class demands a victim, and we are offered a sacrifice to appease the hungry yells of an infuriated mob of millionaires, who will be contented with nothing less than our lives. Monopoly triumphs! Labor in chains ascends the scaffold for having dared to cry out for liberty and right!”

What group of people would most likely agree with Albert Parsons’s perspective?
