The Port Huron Statement at 50 and the Occupy Movement at 5 Months


We honor Tom Hayden - tireless activist, lawmaker, writer - both for how long and hard he fought, and the cogent, hopeful way he did it. From his view of this election season as "the end of one generation on the left and the rise of another," to his reportage on the 1967 Newark riots - sparked by the police beating of a black man - he faithfully upheld "the idea and practice of democracy (as) a revolutionary idea." Crosby, Stills et al commemorate what he saw as that lofty "unfinished business."
