Matthew Caygill on the 1960s Counter-culture

July 7, 2016

I was deeply shocked and saddened to hear of the death of Matthew Caygill earlier this week. Matthew was a long-term friend and collaborator of the Fourth International and Socialist Resistance as well as a stalwart of the Socialist Alliance and, more recently, Left Unity.

Here he is at his entertaining best, speaking at the Before 1968 conference held earlier this year.

      I know only the reports circulated by Facebook friends. Apparently he died on Monday (or early Tuesday) sat with a book in his hand. No prior ill health or anything as far as I am aware. It is pretty shocking. He was a lovely guy.
