Obituary

Steve Cohen

Engage reports the sad news:

We are sorry to convey the news that Steve Cohen died this morning.

Steve was a socialist and a campaigner against all racism, including antisemitism.

Steve was the author of “That’s Funny You Don’t Look Antisemitic”, published in 1984 and re-published by Engage in 2005.  This was a landmark argument against antisemitism on the left.

Steve also wrote this memorable and angry response to a boycott motion passed by the old Higher Education trade union, NATFHE in 2006.

There will be a Commemoration Meeting for Steve On Thursday 12 March at 5.00, Manchester Town Hall.  (To be confirmed)
