That is less important to what they can say and do in other spheres like their politics.But what would they say related to whether or not they are innocent that they wouldn't have said during the trial
I thought you were a socialist party member?And maybe this was true during the cold war or whatever, but we don't live in a society in which a government with access to capital punishment is resulting in people being charged of murder because of extreme political ramblings. If that were true, Noam Chompsky would have been executed by now.
I'm talking about them being silenced on everything particularly on spreading their political views which is one of the main reasons for the fitting up of people like Joe Hill.But this isn't about thier political beliefs, this is about thier ability to voice thier innocence. Anything they could have said to convince the jury they were innocent would have been said before the conviction anyway, so its irrelevent.
