Palestine lost a great friend this week. Richard Jones passed away two days ago. Richard was a close friend of mine. He was one of my favourite poets and a devoted advocate of Palestinian rights and Justice. Richard AKA RedRej was one of the very few intellectuals who struggled to maintain socialist thinking as a dynamic discourse and subject to constant changes. His latest poetry book, Fistful of Poetry was dedicated to the Palestinian plight.
Richard will be missed by many of us.
Rest in peace dear friend.
