DebsSpeak: Liberties

When Eugene V. Debs was released from a six month jail term in the Woodstock Jail for his role in the Great Pullman Strike, he delivered a speech in Chicago entitled, “Liberty.” In the speech he said …

” … in the imprisonment of one man in defiance of all constitutional guarantees, the liberties of all are invaded and placed in peril.”

(Eugene V. Debs, “Liberty” speech, November 22, 1895)
