David Dellinger, a member of the Chicago Seven, has died at the age of 88. Dellinger and his group were arrested for their part in violent anti-war protests that consumed the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago. He remained an activist in his later years, protesting against globalist economic policies. Hear NPR's Melissa Block.
