Stew Albert protested Vietnam war
Stew Albert, a prominent anti-Vietnam war activist, an early supporter of the Black Panthers and a founder of the Yippie radical protest group, died Monday at age 66 in Portland, Ore. The cause was cancer.
Albert was a catalytic figure in the Bay Area's emerging New Left political movement of the 1960s, helping to combine white anti-war activists with black power advocates and hippies.
In 1967, Albert and fellow radicals Jerry Rubin and Abbie Hoffman formed the Youth International Party, melding serious protest with outrageous street theater satire to stage events that became icons of the era.
They ran a real pig named Pigasus for president in 1968, showered dollar bills onto the floor of the New York Stock Exchange in a protest against greed and tried to levitate the Pentagon to exorcise what they called its "evil spirits."
Stewart Edward Albert was born Dec. 4, 1939, in Brooklyn, N.Y. His father was a city clerk who kept a pail of sand in the front hall to put out fires in case Japan bombed their house.
In 1965, lured by the legend of bohemian writer Jack Kerouac, he rode a bus cross-country to City Lights bookstore in North Beach.
Within days, Albert had smoked marijuana with the beat poet and former Boulder resident Allen Ginsberg and was working for the Vietnam Day Committee in Berkeley, where he slept on the floor and helped organize some of nation's first mass protests against the war.
Albert was arrested several times during protests. He was named but not charged in the so-called Chicago Eight Case, in which Rubin, Hoffman, Bobby Seale and Tom Hayden were indicted for conspiring to incite a riot during protests at the 1968 Democratic National Convention.
The case ended with no convictions.
