RIP BOB CROW

From Millwall to Marx, Bob Crow kept us in line. It was an honour to march with him in the footsteps of the Tollpuddle Martyrs and the traditions of a trade union movement which he cherished and held close to his heart ie. radical politics and a funky dialectic that always connected with the grass roots. From Cuban solidarity parties in RMT HQ's to "Actions" at Kings Cross, in support of fellow trade unionists on the continent - Alabama 3 were privileged to be invited along for the ride. Bob was a Don and a man for all people....except those who chose to profit from the exploited.

We owe Bob Crow many things but none less than Percy Bysshe Shelley's axiom that we must "Rise like lions after slumber in unvanquishable numbers, shake the chains to earth like dew which in sleep had fallen on you...we are many but they are few".

All rise for Reverend Bob Crow, shake the chains off Brothers and Sisters, break the bread and don't forget to lay roses on his grave. Rest In Peace.

I'm so sad....just hit me.
