Our dear friend and courageous activist, Alan Joyce, died a mere few weeks ago, and it deeply saddened our entire community. Alan, was known to so many of us in both INPUD and within the UK user’s movement as the chair of NUN, the National Users Network in the UK.
The work he put in back in the days when the UK movement was a mere rag tag collection of angry, clever and dare I say beautiful souls sitting in various living rooms (thanks Mat and Mandy!) and stuffy meeting rooms and lastly, political offices around the UK, was huge. He was always so thoughtful, always so enlightened – and such a calming influence on so many intense meetings, man, are we going to miss him.
