Constantine Panunzio (1884-1964)
“The study here presented embodies the findings of an investigation into the recent [1919-1920] deportations of persons deemed to be unlawfully in the country. . . Its purpose is to call public attention to practices that are inconsistent with the American tradition of justice and fair-play.”
I have also recorded Panunzio’s autobiograpy: The Soul of an Immigrant.
You might also find interesting the Address of Oscar Neebe, from The Chicago Martyrs — The Famous Speeches of the Eight Anarchists (at the Haymarket bombing trial) , by John P. Altgeld, 1899. “There is no evidence to show that I was connected with the bomb throwing, or that I was near it, or anything of that kind. So, I will ask you to hang me, too; for I think it is more honorable to die suddenly than to be killed by inches. I have a family and children; and if they know their father is dead, they will bury him. They can go to the grave, and kneel down by the side of it; but they can’t go to the penitentiary and see their father, who was convicted for a crime that he hadn’t anything to do with.” I read Neebe’s speech for the 8th Anniversary of LibriVox.
