RIP Mrs Desai, 02/04/33 – 23/12/10
“We have shown that workers like us, new to these shores, will never accept being treated without dignity and respect. We have shown that white workers will support us.”
A contemporary analysis of the Grunwick strike by A. Sivanadan, here.
Very sadly Jayaben Desai, who became the public face of the Grunwick strike of 1976/77, died on 23rd December. She had been ill for several months. The funeral will be on 31st December, 11.00 am at Golders Green crematorium. Mr Desai is quite rightly very proud of his wife and would like people to come if they are able, so can you spread the word around?
A sad loss for us all.
