David Dellinger, one of the famed Chicago Seven who were put on trial in 1969 and 1970 for their part in the antiwar protests during the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, died on Tuesday at the age of 88. Even at his advanced age, Dellinger was still interested in politics. In 2001, he hitched a ride from his home in Vermont to demonstrations in Quebec City to protest the Free Trade Area of the Americas.
