IT IS with great sadness that we learnt of the death of Ros Gardner, who had been suffering from a long term illness. She will be remembered by many comrades in London, Bournemouth and Southampton. She was a very committed member of the SWP and was an inspiring speaker. She was particularly active during the miners’ strike and helped collect large amounts of money to keep Shirebrook, Derbyshire miners going.
In more recent years she was a great campaigner for the Anti Nazi League, and defied the TUC stewards at Tolpuddle by going round the enclosure with her bucket and stickers. She was a very warm person and will be sadly missed by her family and friends. We send our condolences to Bob and children Graham, Sarah, Esther and Sam, and grandchildren.
Anwar Ditta, a heroic anti-racist campaigner, died last week.
