From 1962’s Port Huron Statement to 2010’s Peace and Justice Resource Center Tom Hayden has dedicated his entire life to exposing the real motives behind wars and working to end them. Many consider him the single most important figure of the 1960s student movement. One of the Chicago 8 as well as a founder of the SDS, Tom has carried the spirit of the 60s well into the 21st century working for peace, ending overseas sweatshops and animals rights. Getting labeled a radical did nothing to damage Tom Hayden’s reputation here in Southern California where he served in the state legislature for nearly twenty years. Most striking is Tom’s utter contempt for cynicism even as America’s involvement in Afghanistan approaches a decade. Today’s conversation begins with overwhelming polling that indicates Americans have grown weary of war. Tom Hayden can be read every day at TomHayden.com. His books include the Tom Hayden reader. His newest book, The Long Sixties: From 1960 to Barack Obama, is available from Paradigm Publishers and book retailers near you.
