Solidarity Membership - Eugene Debs Level
"The issue is Socialism versus Capitalism. I am for Socialism because I am for humanity. We have been cursed with the reign of gold long enough!"
We stand on the shoulders of giants!
Eugene Debs is one of the most recognized labor and socialist leaders in US history. A leader of the famous 1894 Pullman Strike, which became known as "Debs' Rebellion," Debs eventually ran for president five times on the Socialist Party ticket. He was imprisoned in 1918—accused of "sedition" and called a "traitor" by then-President Woodrow Wilson—due to his opposition to the slaughter of World War I. Despite this, he won nearly one million votes in the 1920 presidential election—while he was in prison—the largest-ever vote for a socialist candidate running independently of the capitalists' parties.
