Remembering Şehîd Şahîn Qereçox

From Kurdish Solidarity Network (obituary of an anarchist in Rojava)

This epitaph was written by a friend and comrade of Şahin / Waka / Farid

Şehîd Şahîn Qereçox, known as Waka to his many friends, was sadly martyred in the fight against Daesh in Hajin on 6th October. He had been serving in the YPG, fighting for the revolution in Rojava for 4 months. For as long as I’d known him he was a loving comrade and a true revolutionary. I’m still struggling to find the words to describe him – he was so thoughtful and creative he defied simple generalisation. Whatever I write will merely scratch the surface of what he meant to me and so many people.

From The Black Rose Anarchist Federation

On the evening of May 12th, 2018 – the day before Mother’s Day – our friend and comrade Pablo accepted a bike courier gig that would offer extra money for working in inclement weather at night – app based food delivery service Caviar. In the darkness and rain of that night his tire became lodged in a storm drain leading to the fatal accident which took his life. Pablo was 34 years old. He was full of life and love. He influenced and deeply touched the lives of so many. His many close friends, comrades, family members and loved ones will forever miss him, but carry him with them as they were all deeply influenced by his beautiful heart, mind and life.

From Contra Info by anarchist Gustavo Rodríguez

To memory of Mauricio Morales Duarte

The cult of the dead is nothing more than contempt for true pain. […] The latter must also disappear, faced with the fatality of death the people must react firmly. We must fight against suffering instead of displaying it, of promenading it in grotesque processions and false commemorations […] Pyramids, graves, tombs must be thrown down; we must drive the plow through the walls of cemiteries to rid humanity of what we call respect for the dead, which is the worship of corpses“.

Antonio Morillo, an anarcho-syndicalist related to cleaning section of the Madrid Metro, died at home before he reached the age of 40, leaving behind a 4-year-old daughter and the love of your life.

We would like to remember this comrade who was always firm and combative in the fight against the bosses. “There can be no social peace until workwomen and workmen emancipation is achieved”

Today, March 13th, the sad note of the death of Eduardo Colombo strikes us painfully. With Eduardo, not only disappears a dear and fraternal compañero, but also a first-rate thinker and a militant anarchist of unshakeable convictions.

Obituary: Jack Stevenson

Jack Stevenson passed away on Easter Sunday. An electrician by trade, and a keen gardener of vegetables on his allotment, Jack was prominent among London anarchists and in the 1960s. Among other achievements, he was the founder, treasurer, and inconspicuous donor to the Sit-Down-Or-Pay-Up fund, which subsidised legal expenses and fines of supporters of the Committee of One Hundred anti-bomb campaign, mostly charged with obstructing traffic.

An Unyielding Anarchist, Author, and Rebel

From Crimethinc

We’re saddened to announce the passing of Paul Z. Simons, longtime anarchist, journalist, and author. Paul was an anarchist writer with a playful spirit, an uncompromising love of life, and equally uncompromising hatred for authority—be it from the right or the left. We treasure our memories of Paul. His presence will be sorely missed.
