Hide Profile

Ettor joined the International Workers of the World in 1906 and was active in leading strikes in several cities. He came to Lawrence, Mass. during the textile workers' strike of 1912 to help organize workers and to assist in relief efforts. He and Arturo Giovannitti, another organizer, were arrested as "accessories to murder" after a woman striker was shot and killed during a demonstration, although they had been speaking at a strike meeting three miles away from the murder. They were later acquitted of all charges.
