Jerry Rubin

From dKosopedia

Jerry Rubin was a Sixties radical who helped organized the Vietnam Day Committte and helped to lead the Yippies. Born in Cincinnati in 1938, he attend The University of California, Berkeley in 1964 but dropped out to become a full time activist. The first demonstration Rubin attended protested the refusal of a Berkeley grocer to hire African Americans. Soon Rubin was leading protests of his own.

Rubin played a role in the demonstrations disrupting the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Along with six others (Abbie Hoffman, Rennie Davis, John Froines, David Dellinger, Lee Weiner, and Tom Hayden; Bobby Seale was part of the original group but was excluded later), Rubin was put on trial for conspiracy and crossing state lines with the intention of inciting a riot.
