Since that interview we have worked closely alongside Alex on various issues such as transgender rights, the nurses struggle and in generally advancing conditions for workers in Aotearoa and elsewhere. He has consistently shown himself to be a staunch advocate for those suffering at the bottom of this economic and political system. We have recently learned that Alex himself is now suffering…our friend has been diagnosed with advanced cancer!

AWSM sends its solidarity and love to Alex and his wife Karly at this time.

For those wishing to give back something to this fighter for social justice in his time of need, please contribute generously to the site which has been established to help fund medical and other costs:
