Nancy Pelosi Remembers Late Beastie Boys Band Member As “Agent Of Change”

“As an artist, Adam Yauch changed the course of music; as a humanitarian, he changed lives. He was a creative genius who used his powerful platform and celebrity to address the cause of human rights for the people of Tibet.”
Pelosi also recalls one of Yauch’s northern Californian fundraisers for the free Tibet movement: “What a beautiful sight it was in 1996…when he drew 100,000 people to Golden Gate Park in San Francisco for a concert to benefit the cause of freedom in Tibet.”
Yauch was a major part of our culture in the 90s and beyond, and we’re going to need to draft another big public figure to keep this kind of activism going…and also fight for our right to party.
