DebsSpeak: Worker Solidarity

Eugene V. Debs on worker solidarity.

“The radical elements of the American working class must either accommodate their tactical differences and unite in a solid phalanx against capitalism or they will surely be further divided and ultimately devoured by their enemies.”

“The workers in the United States must come together some time if they would be saved from the jaws of the capitalist shark.”

“The time was never better than right now for unity between the factions of the industrial and political movement of this country. Divided, the workers will gain nothing. United, the world and all its treasures are theirs.”

(Eugene V. Debs, “The United Front: Shall We Have Solidarity Or Be Slaughtered?”, The New Age, June 22, 1922)
