Farewell Bryan 16 May 1954 – 26 March 2013 You Are Missed

February 23rd, 2014

Bryan died in 2013 in March so this site has become an archive site where we are keeping the work of his later life.

There are many documents and actions recorded on this extensive Peace by Peace site from the Pine Gap and early Peace by Peace work through to the Ploughshares Action 2011 and Trial 2013.

Bryan was a great record keeper and we have the stories of a long, varied and creative activist career.

Some of his earlier work we are collecting on Evernote and we are looking for a more permanent archivist and blogger and historian to take up the job of archiving and displaying so that activists can learn from what he did.

Bryan’s work was peculiar in that it often aimed at ordinary regional folk and he remained steadfast in his belief that it was ordinary people who will change the work through courageous action for social justice.

In the meantime, I will repost here some of the work around the trial of Graeme Dunstan which was also really a posthumous trial for Bryan.
Thanks to Robin Taubenfeld and Culley Palmer for the work they did recording the trial. There are some key documents and links to include.

Culley’s  and Treena’s Tweets at #Standbygraeme are special too.
