Veteran activist Tom Hayden stops by KFAI on Wednesday, October 8th at 11 am to talk about his book Ending the War in Iraq on Truth to Tell.
Founder of Students for Democratic Society, Hayden is an American social and political activist and politician, most famous for his involvement in the anti-war and civil rights movements of the 1960s. He was a famed sixties radical, then a long-term California state senator, an acclaimed author and teacher at many universities, formerly married to actress/activist Jane Fonda. Today, he is a passionate opponent of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the polluting quest for oil, and sweatshop conditions across the planet. He not only writes about these subjects, but works toward their realization as a close adviser to many politicians, peace and human rights groups.
