John Tinmouth

We at South Tyneside Stop The War Coalition would like to convey our sadness at the sudden passing of our comrade John Tinmouth.

John was a strong supporter of Stop The War for twenty years or so, during which time we attended many demonstrations and meetings together.

He was a fearless debater and would engage with any stranger in the street while dishing out huge amounts of leaflets on whatever cause he was supporting.

His passionate support for the Palestinian cause via the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign led to many well researched articles published on our website.

We met regularly every Tuesday evening and John brought reports and comments on various political world events sparking off some very noisy debates the air being the bluest blue imaginable he would question everything and was determined to promote his point of view.

He was also extremely funny and irreverent and was full of stories from his life.

He was unique and we loved him for it.

We will miss him.
