Eugene Debbs

Socialist Party co-founder Eugene V. Debs fought for the people in the early 20th century. He also founded the Industrial Workers of the World organization. His influence became so strong, politicians had the IWW dismantled. Many of its leaders were incarcerated. In 1920, Debs ran for president from prison and received almost 1 million votes. #PopNews
