Frank Parker, Birmingham, England
FRANK PARKER, a longstanding member of the Troops Out Movement, an anti-imperialist, communist and trade unionist, has died at the age of 90.
An honorary life member of Birmingham Trades Union Council for his long and consistent membership, he was a strong supporter of the Irish Peace Process.
I think he knew the Good Friday Agreement off by heart!
He was a regular visitor to Ireland on the Troops Out Movement delegations to Ireland but also with his beloved wife Audrey (RIP) on touring holidays making long-lasting friendships on the way. Although ill-health reduced his activity this last year or so he always kept up to date with the political situation and still made his views strongly known.
We will miss you, Frank.
By Mary Pearson, Secretary, Troops Out Movement (still campaigning for British withdrawal from Ireland)
