Tom Hayden- Radical Protest Marching into the Mainstream

by Nomad

Tom Hayden Protest Quote

Famed '60s anti-war activist Tom Hayden died on Sunday after a long illness. 
Once denounced as a traitor and a dangerous radical by his detractors, Hayden went on to serve in the California State Assembly and State Senate. For almost two decades, Hayden was a progressive voice on issues such as the environment, education and animal welfare. 
He once wrote about his days as a protester:
"I didn't want to go from beating to beating, jail to jail... There was an entire generation to arouse, primarily about civil rights but also about the larger issues."
