At the forefront of opposing the wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq,  
Hayden was a leader in ending the Vietnam War a generation ago and has  
unmatched experience of 18 years as an elected official and 50 years  
of fighting for the public interest.

Among the things Mr. Hayden will be talking about are the economic,  
environmental, and human costs of war; the proportion of our taxes that go to  
the military; the threat to our democracy from the military-industrial  
complex - how the defense industry and other forces quash democracy through  
use of lobbyists, legislators, and media; and, how we can move toward an  
economy and society that benefits human welfare.

Tom Hayden is 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 writes for /The  
Nation/ and is the Director of /The Peace and Justice Resource Center/ in  
Culver City, CA.   He was a founding member of Students for a Democratic  
Society in 1961 and author of the Port Huron statement.  He was beaten as a  
Freedom Rider in the Deep South and arrested in the protests against the  
Vietnam War at the 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention.  He served 18 years  
in the California legislature and has been a delegate to six Democratic  
National Conventions.  He has written many books and has taught at a number  
of colleges including Harvard University’s Institute of Politics.   For
