Greetings from Lucha Internacionalista, Spanish State section of the IWU-FI and from leaders of the IWU-FI
Barcelona, July 2015
To the IWL-FI
To the British section
We want to convey Lucha Internacionalista’s condolences on the death of comrade Bill Hunter, and we request you extend it to his family, friends and comrades.
We deeply regret Bill’s death, as the Trotskyist leader he was, both in the construction of the British party, and in the reconstruction of the Fourth International. We are sorry, for the workers’ leader he was from his beginnings in the docks and never forgetting the class struggle or criteria.
We shared meetings and talks with him and it has been an honour to do it and learn from his vast experience.
Bill Hunter, to socialism, forever!
Josep Lluis and Esther Alcazar,

Upon the death of Trotskyist leader Bill Hunter
Comrades of the IWL-FI,
We are so deeply sorry for the death of Comrade Bill Hunter, one of the Trotskyist leaders of longest militant history in the world. And an old militant of the workers’ movement, a fighter of English Trotskyism and of the historical fight to rebuild the Fourth International.
We had the honour to have known him and to have shared with him several militant activities and all kinds of internationalists meeting as well as pleasant personal moments.
We share the grief of his family, friends and comrades.
Dear Bill, to socialism forever!
Mercedes Petit and Miguel Sorans, Members of the IWU-FI
