Milton for Peace will present a presentation by activist Tom Hayden called The Politics of War and Peace at Curry College's Keith Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 11.
The event is free to Curry College students and a suggested $5 donation is being asked of the community.
Hayden has been involved in political writing and activism for over 50 years. The Director of The Peace and Justice Resource Center in Culver City, CA, is one of the leading voices for ending the United States’ overseas conflicts, reforming the government and saving the environment. He also writes for The Nation.
According to a release from Milton for Peace: “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.”
Hayden’s appearance is co-sponsored by The American Friends Service Committee, Curry Committee for Social and Environmental Justice, Dorchester People for Peace, Mass Peace Action, The Milton Times, Sustainable Milton and United for Justice with Peace.
