Philip Grosser was sent to Alcatraz because he didn't want to murder anyone, even on government orders. He was a Boston anarchist and anti-militarist who refused to be drafted into the slaughter of World War One.

"[I]f a man sues the government for wrongful detention, and if it is proven or conceded that he was at least detained, then the onus is on the government to show cause for his detention. If the government instead requests dismissal of proceedings [on the ground that litigation would expose state secrets], it has simply failed to show the necessary cause..."

Reformist left's response to immigration Gestapo raid: hollow words, empty gestures
10 Mar 2007
The central problem that the reformists share in common is their promotion of kinder, gentler policies toward immigrants by the imperialist government. But in the US, as in all the world's imperialist countries, the racist persecution of immigrant workers has been an integral part of imperialist war from the very beginning. From the anti-Irish lynch mobs during the theft of northern Mexico to open the territory for slavery, to the massive deportation of Mexican and Eastern European immigrant workers during the First World War, to the internment of Japanese in concentration camps during the Second World War, the scapegoating and persecution of immigrants has served the dual purpose of fortifying the imperialist war abroad, and waging the class war at home by dividing the working class and smashing its attempts to organize across national dividing lines.

ICE Raids in New Bedford, MA
09 Mar 2007
On Tuesday, March 6, officers from the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, also known as the ICE or ‘ice’, conducted a raid at a New Bedford factory that manufactures safety vests and backpacks for the U.S. Military. 327 workers at Michael Bianco, Inc., mostly women from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, were taken into custody by the ICE for failing to provide sufficient documentation of their immigration status. The ICE is being widely denounced for this military-style raid that has caused disruption and grief in local immigrant communities. Of primary concern are the many children and other family members who have been left without support while the detainees await ‘processing’ at a facility in the former Fort Devens military base, 100 miles from New Bedford.

On Wednesday, a press conference and demonstration was held outside the John F. Kennedy Federal Building in downtown Boston to issue three demands to the District Director of the ICE, Bruce Chadbourne. Maria Elena Letona of Centro Presente read these demands to over 75 demonstrators assembled outside in sub-zero temperatures.

Boston IndyMedia was there to record this audio piece, including an interview with a witness to the raids.
