Lord Eric Avebury campaigned for many unpopular causes. He was a true champion of the fight for Dalit rights in the UK and campaigned tirelessly for Clause 9(5)(a) to be implemented in the Equality Act. At the time of his death he was Vice Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Dalits.
Dalit Solidarity Network UK, its members and supporters salute you Eric. You will always be remembered.
A lasting and wonderful tribute can be read on Eric’s blog.
