Remembering Robin Beste: co-founder of Public Reading Rooms
Robin with author Heathcote Williams
Public Reading Rooms is very sad to announce that Robin Beste who was one of the founders and the driving force behind both the PRR website and its publishing project has died. Robin had a very serious heart attack in late May and never recovered. He was active on the left for many decades both in his union and on the revolutionary left and in recent years as a leading figure in Stop the War and in his local Labour party. Among many other things he was a huge supporter of Jeremy Corbyn and of the Palestinian struggle. A lovely and amazing person much loved by all. This is the tribute from Andrew Burgin who worked with Robin on the Public Reading Rooms project. We will be publishing all others in due course.
