Remembering fellow activist John Blair Fish

Date: 5 September 2013

We’ve just heard today the sad news that John Blair Fish, long time member of WDM’s local Edinburgh group has died suddenly.   John was a friend of WDM and fellow activist for many years, giving his time and energy generously to campaigns for global justice.  

He was a member of WDM’s council, representing the Scottish WDM groups, as well as being on the Scottish steering group and, more recently, the activist forum.  As a dedicated activist and campaigner for change John was well known by his local MP and MSP for his lobbying visits on all of WDM’s campaigns. He was also a regular of WDM Edinburgh group stalls, helping to get the word out and persuading people to take action.  

For his generosity of spirit, his lifelong commitment to campaigning on poverty and global justice, and for the time, dedication and support he gave to WDM’s work, we will remember him.
