Ivan Cooper: civil rights campaigner

The Workers Party has expressed its condolences to the family and friends of veteran civil rights campaigner Ivan Cooper, who died earlier today.

Ivan was an early member of the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association and a tireless campaigner for social justice. He was also a consistent and outspoken critic of terrorism and state violence.

His legacy will be the courageous and politically pioneering work he undertook in the late 1960s and early 1970s and his commitment to securing civil rights for all.
