The Northern Ireland Region of the Party is shocked and saddened at the untimely death of our esteemed comrade and friend, Comrade John Jefferies. John will be a serious loss to our Party at every level. He will be sadly missed by his comrades.
John was a good comrade, a committed Party member, someone who understood the fundamental importance of political ideas and the necessity for a radical transformation of the political, social and economic system in which we live. He understood well the nature of class and the class system and that capital confers political power which its ruling class uses to legitimise and protect its interests at the expense of the working class.
John had long service on the CEC and was a tireless member of the Party’s International Section and he had travelled frequently to meet with his international comrades in the Communist and Workers’ parties.
Comrade John Jefferies was a dedicated political activist, a committed Marxist-Leninist, a life-long fighter for the working class.
In acknowledgment of his long service to the Workers Party, the
Party in Northern Ireland recently made a presentation to John to mark his unstinting and loyal service to the Party.
Party members in Northern Ireland mourn the passing of a truecomrade. He will be deeply missed by us all.
