Cambridge, Mass.-Feb. 7, 2011:
From the UJP event announcement:
Antiwar activist and author Tom Hayden spoke on the Long War, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and Yemen and the effect on domestic programs and civil liberties at home.

After over fifty years of activism, politics and writing, Tom Hayden is still a leading voice for ending the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan, for erasing sweatshops, saving the environment, and reforming politics through a more participatory democracy.

He currently writes for The Nation and organizes, travels and speaks constantly against the current wars as founder and Director of the Peace and Justice Resource Center in Culver City. He also recently drafted and lobbied successfully for Los Angeles and San Francisco ordinances to end all taxpayer subsidies for sweatshops.

“Tom Hayden changed America”, writes Nicolas Lemann of The Atlantic. He created “the blueprint for the Great Society programs”, writes former presidential adviser Richard Goodwin. He was “the single greatest figure of the 1960s student movement” according to a New York Times book review. During his time in Sacramento, he was described as “the conscience of the Senate” by the Sacramento Bee’s political analyst. The Nation magazine recently named him one of the 50 greatest progressives of the 20th century.

Hayden's talk will introduce the Afghanistan/Pakistan War Forum Series.

Sponsored by the UJP Afghanistan/Pakistan Task Force.
