Farewelling Sam Watts

Morning Star supporters gathered for an inspirational social evening at Liverpool’s Casa club May 2015 in memory of veteran communist and campaigner Sam Watts, who died last year aged 89.

Mr Watts featured in the Ken Loach film The Spirit of ’45, and his interview from the film was shown on Saturday.

Speakers at the social evening included Gordon Nash, 90, a veteran comrade of Mr Watts, Carolyn Jones, director of the Liverpool-based Institute of Employment Rights, and Kevan Nelson of Merseyside Morning Star Readers and Supporters Group. Band the Peacemakers gave a lively and well-received performance.[2]

Merseyside CPB

Morning Star management committee chair Carolyn Jones spotlights Gordon Nash selling five copies of the paper at his Unite Community branch meetings. But she also raises his keen sense of humour, noting that, “on his 90th birthday, after we had put up a plaque in the CASA (the club set up by Liverpool dockers) to celebrate the life of Sam Watts, Gordon announced that he wanted one too — but he wanted it while he was still alive so he could enjoy it!

“That was done and then he contributed an extra donation to update the words when he was no longer with us — something we will do with sorrow and pride. “Gordon was a wise old man with political drive and determination. Our branch was all the better for having him as a member.”[3]



In 2011 Carolyn Jones was a a member of the Communist Party of Britain executive committee and Director of the Institute of Employment Rights.
