Gail Lord

Our comrade Gail Lord has lost her battle with cancer. She died peacefully at 1.30am this morning.

Gail's family is organising a memorial service to celebrate her remarkable life of struggle, and we will be able to let comrades know the details of that within a couple of days.

If you would like to send her partner Ted a message in the meantime, please email it to me and I will ensure it is passed on.

Gail will be greatly missed. Her personal courage and life-long commitment to the struggle for socialism was, and will continue to be, an inspiration to us all.

Comradely,

Lisa Macdonald

Gail was a wonderful person, committed to the cause of the betterment of humanity, especially to the freedom of all incarcerated in Australia's detention centres, to the rights of workers, and to the environment.
