Stew Albert 1939-2006

Long-time activist, Stew Albert died January in Portland, OR after a  
long bout with liver cancer. Stew was a charter member of the Youth  
International Party (Yippies), along with his close friends Jerry  
Rubin and Abbie Hoffman. He was among those Yippies who were arrested  
in Chicao for nominating a pig for president, but the other one won.  
He was also an unindicted co-conspirator in the famous Chicago  
Conspiracy trial. He later moved to Berkeley, CA and was active in  
all the left-wing strugges that occurred there from 1969 through the  
70's and 80's, not the least of which was his unsucessful run for  
Sheriff of Alameida County in support of the Black Panthers, who were  
being oppressed by the then-current sheriff.

I hope his friends could add testimonials about his life.
