Dave Gibson 1950-2017

Very sad news to share from Barnsley – Leeds SWP sends its thoughts and condolences to the family, friends and comrades of Dave Gibson –  ‘Revolutionary socialist, UCU member, Secretary Barnsley Trades Council, Supporter of Stand up To Racism, Freedom Rider, Campaigner Against Fracking and Scot’ – a great fighter for socialism who will be very sadly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him and working alongside him.

Dave’s funeral will be on Thursday 3 August, 10.50am, Barnsley Crematorium, Doncaster Road, Barnsley S71 5EH, followed by a celebration of his life at Barnsley Civic Theatre. No flowers, donations to Stand Up to Racism online or via a collection box at the celebration of Dave’s life and political activism at Barnsley Civic Theatre.

Edited to add:
Obituary in Socialist Worker, a notice in the Barnsley Chronicle here, a tribute from Sheffield TUC here, and a link to some of Dave Gibson’s writings inc from Socialist Review here.
