David Eden, 1953-2017

David Eden, who was responsible for all of LabourStart’s translations into Spanish for many years, helping to grow our mailing list and raise our profile in Spanish speaking countries, passed away on 18 July this year.  

Some of you will have met David at the LabourStart conference in Washington, D.C. in 2009, where he was an active participant and chaired one of the sessions.

David was a lifelong democratic socialist, a member of Kibbutz Yasur and a founder of the Peace Now movement in Israel.  I first met him the early 1980s and we worked together both at the Givat Haviva educational institute and in the United Workers Party (Mapam).  David moved to the United States in 1996 where he continued to support the causes of peace and social justice both in Israel and the US.

He was a good friend and a good man, and will be sorely missed.

The LabourStart family extends its condolences to his wife Elka and his family.

May his memory be blessed.

    A special man with a big heart and a love of life. I shall always remember our Peruvian meal in New York. May his memory be blessed.
