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 5.30, Manchester Town Hall. Now confirmed.
Update: Bob on Steve Cohen.
