With great sadness, we have learnt of the passing of long-time CPA member Betty Beeching. Betty and her late husband John were stalwarts of Palestinian activism for many decades, and their East Vancouver living room was the hub of meetings and receptions. The banner in the photo collage was hand-made by Betty for one of our first fund-raising committees, set up after the 1982 Israeli aggression on Lebanon. She and John represented a model of activism that we all wanted to achieve in our later years. She was an inspiration to everyone, and we send our condolences to all of her family.
