Ray Dissington 1953-2004

Issue No. 1907

Socialists in south east London were saddened to hear of the sudden death of SWP member Ray Dissington. An active trade unionist at Lewisham council until his redundancy, he had a real anger at the injustices of the system and despite difficulties due to a disability always came on demonstrations.

He was a frequent contributor at meetings and a commited anti-racist. Comrades will miss his good humour, his bad jokes, his doughnuts, and his passionate concern for anyone suffering oppression. Our deepest sympathies to his family.
