Industrial Workers of the World

The working class and the employing class have nothing in common. There can be no peace so long as hunger and want are found among millions of the working people and the few, who make up the employing class, have all the good things of life.

100 years ago on this night, the Swedish-American working man and organiser of all of them, Joel Emmanuel Hägglund or 'Joe Hill', writer of 'There is Power in a Union' and 'The Preacher and the Slave', wrote these his final words while awaiting execution on the dawn, framed for a crime he did not commit:

"My will is easy to decide,
For there is nothing to divide.
My kind don't need to fuss and moan --
"Moss does not cling to a rolling stone."

"My body? Ah, If I could choose,
I would to ashes it reduce,
And let the merry breezes blow
My dust to where some flowers grow.

"Perhaps some fading flower then
Would come to life and bloom again.
This is my last and final will.
Good luck to all of you - Joe Hill"
