5. Tom Hayden, a political giant...as well as Abby Hoffman and Bobby Seale..

I have made it a mission for myself to read Tom Hayden's Port Huron Statement..

called for the growth and implementation of participatory democracy across college campuses, in the South, and in inner cities. The writers of the document believed that ordinary citizens, particularly students, could create change through non-violent means..

and Bobby Seale, alive to this day, just wanted equality for the Black community..is this too much to ask..

We Want Education For Our People That Exposes the True Nature Of This Decadent American Society.
We Want Education That Teaches Us Our True History and Our Role In The Present-Day Society.

We Want An Immediate End To Police Brutality And Murder Of Black People.

And so much more, just need to do research...VN took 50,000+ men of our generation..and turned me into a pacifist..2 brothers served in VN..they are okay..

I was 21 in 1968..my second son born in April..my oldest son born '66, I keep asking myself "where the hell were you when all this was going down"..this "Trial of the Chicago 7" is superb....everyone can learn from it!
