Funeral for Jayaben Desai, a working class women hero
You will probably have read of the death of Jayaben Desai, leader of
the Grunwick Strike, shortly before Christmas, aged 77. Pete Firmin of
the Brent TUC has been in contact with her husband, Mr Desai, who would
like people to attend if they can. The funeral is at 11am on December
31st at Golders Green Crematorium.
Very good piece from my friend Salma Yaqoob who is also a brilliant women leader here.
