Remembering Roy Emery

Submitted by Kate Sharpley on April 10, 2023

We’re sad to pass on news of the death of our comrade Roy Emery. Roy was a good friend to the KSL, as well a long-term supporter of Black Flag and member of the Direct Action Movement and then SolFed. Our comrade MH paid him this tribute: ‘I remember Roy as someone who would stand up for his beliefs. He was dogged in his support of others trying to organise, whether nationally or locally. I can remember pieces Albert pulled together in Black Flag bemoaning the new age hokery in Glastonbury and knew that Roy was the source. That he only had a couple of comrades around him, including his partner Jan, makes his long-standing militancy in a small country town all the more admirable.’

We send our condolences to Roy’s family, friends and comrades.
