MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A nationally-known peace activist from the Twin Cities died Saturday.

Marv Davidov was the iconic face behind many anti-war protests. He was a Freedom Rider for more than four decades and claimed to have been arrested dozens of times.

He may be best known for organizing protests against Honeywell, which he believed created weapons to be used by the U.S. military.

Davidov suffered several health problems. He was 80-years-old.
