Back to the Hangman (1919)

Booklet titled "Back to the Hangman" published by the Friends of Freedom for India (FFI) in 1919, with the intent of presenting "opinions of leading American journals on the deportation of Hindu political prisoners and refugees." Contains resolutions passed by FFI at the Central Opera House in New York City on April 10, 1919. The pamphlet focuses, in part, on the deportation case of Gopal Singh. The pamphlet opens with a message from Gopal Singh, who writes that his aim to expose Americans to the cause of Indian resistance to British imperialism, he has served one year in the Federal prison at McNeil's Island, Washington. The rest of the pamphlet quotes from articles on the case from the New Republic, the Commonwealth, Oakland World, the Dial, World Tomorrow, and the editor of the New York Times.
