RIP: Sheila Robin, Secretary of Brent Stop the War, 1949-2015
I am sorry to have to pass on the very sad news that Sheila Robin, the immensely hard working secretary of Brent Stop The War, active in the Red/Green socialist choir and many more labour movement and international campaigns died suddenly on Tuesday.
Sheila has been absolutely central to Brent Stop the War, making it the priority of her political activity for the last few years. We will miss her immensely.
We felt that Sheila would have wanted us to proceed with Monday’s meeting and to do all we can to keep the group going, although she will be impossible to replace.
Sheila had been unwell for several months and was awaiting an operation, but we all expected her to recover in the near future, so this has come as a huge shock to us all. Our thoughts are with her daughter, Anna, and all the family at this very difficult time.
At the moment, the family are busy and have asked to be left for a while. Kara, Sheila's niece, on behalf of Anna and the family would like all Sheila's friends and comrades to be advised.
Sarah Cox, Brent Stop the War
Stop the War Coalition sends its condolences to Sheila's family at this very sad time. Funeral details are available here.
