It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our friend, comrade, and local 28 Fellow Defender Dave Vasey.
An outspoken advocate for environmental justice, anti-fascist organizing, and decolonization, Dave dedicated his life to fighting against state and corporate powerhouses that he saw as a threat to the working class, and to the world as a whole. In spite of the fact that he was years older than your average frontline activist he was always the first to lead the charge, to organize a fight back, and to deliver a rousing speech that would put fire into the belly of even the most apprehensive revolutionary.
A true fighter to the end, he spent his last days on the frontlines of some of the largest anti-fascist actions Toronto has seen in decades, and was heavily engaged in the soaring eagles camp, as well as solidarity actions in support of the Unist’ot’en camp.
He is survived by his cat Tom who has been adopted by two local 28 members, and his memory will echo in all of our future actions.
