A year ago AWSM conducted an interview with social activist Alex Pirie:
Since that interview we have worked closely alongside Alex on various issues such as transgender rights, the nurses
struggle and in generally advancing conditions for workers in Aotearoa and elsewhere. He has consistently shown himself
to be a staunch advocate for those suffering at the bottom of this economic and political system. We have recently
learned that Alex himself is now suffering…our friend has been diagnosed with advanced cancer!
AWSM sends its solidarity and love to Alex and his wife Karly at this time.
For those wishing to give back something to this fighter for social justice in his time of need, please contribute
generously to the site which has been established to help fund medical and other costs:
AN INJURY TO ONE IS AN INJURY TO ALL
