SDS presents: Tom Hayden

On Thursday, March 12, Tom Hayden will be speaking at 7pm at the UWM Zelazo Center (2400 E. Kenwood). This event is free and open to the public.

Tom Hayden has been an activist and author since the early 1960s. He was active in Students for a Democratic Society, and is the principal author of "The Port Huron Statement." He was also one of the "Chicago 8" (along with Abbie Hoffman, Bobby Seale, and Dave Dellinger) tried for conspiracy following the 1968 Democratic National Convention.

Since the 1960s, Hayden has authored several books, including The Love of Possession is a Disease with Them, Ending the War in Iraq, The Zapatista Reader and Writings for a Democratic Society. He also served as a California state legislator from 1982 to 2000.

His speech at the 1999 WTO Protests in Seattle is featured in the documentary This Is What Democracy Looks Like. He is currently a national co-director of No More Sweatshops! and regularly writes for The Nation and The Huffington Post.
