UJP Activist: Tom Hayden: Afghanistan, Obama, the Peace Movement, and the Long


When: Monday, February 7, 2011, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Where: First Parish Church • 3 Church St. - Barn Room (upstairs) • Harvard
Square T (take Church St exit) • Cambridge

Antiwar activist and author Tom Hayden [1] will speak 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 [2].
