IN SUPPORT OF BILL MONNING FOR ASSEMBLY
Activist Tom Hayden will be at Bookshop to discuss current politics and the upcoming election, participate in q&a, and sign copies of his recent book, Ending the War in Iraq.
After forty years of activism, politics and writing, Tom Hayden still is a leading voice for ending the war in Iraq, erasing sweatshops, saving the environment, and reforming politics through greater citizen participation. Hayden was a founding member of the Students for a Democratic Society and author of its visionary call, the Port Huron Statement, described by Howard Zinn as "one of those historic documents which represents an era." Hayden was also one of the famous "Chicago Seven" protesters during the 1968 Democratic Convention. He was elected to the California State Assembly in 1982, and to the state Senate ten years later, serving eighteen years in all. (booksense)
