MANY IN York were shocked by the sudden death of Colin Clark. Colin fought for socialism in the Labour Party and in engineering and council workplaces in the West Midlands during the 1960s and 70s. Let down by Labour, he joined the Socialist Workers Party in York. In his early fifties he successfully studied for a degree in History and Spanish.
Despite failing health he took part in demonstrations and Socialist Worker sales whenever he could and loved the cut and thrust of a lively Marxist forum. Condolences to Oliver and Christine.

Anwar Ditta, a heroic anti-racist campaigner, died last week.
