Just spotted this over on Tony’s blog.
Michael died a few days ago, before Kurt Vonnegut, and deserves as much space as him.
We are deeply saddened to have recieved these words from Andrew Tyler of Animal Aid:
A very special person, Michael Sutcliffe, died over Easter. He was a great supporter of Animal Aid and several other groups; went on all the major and a great many minor demos; wrote non-stop to government departments and newspapers; chaired and participated in all kinds of meetings; was personally very kind and supportive…and brave: his non-stop campaigning barely flagged through a series of painful and debilitating ailments and illnesses over recent years. He was 84. He was found, presumed to have suffered a heart attack, at his desk with his research papers all around …active and determined to the last. He was an inspiration and a wonderful asset to the animal rights movement. He will be sorely missed.
Director Animal Aid”
Michael Sutcliffe was the epitome of a true English gentleman, too much of a gentleman to be anything other than a vegan.
