In Memory and Honor of
Marilyn Jean Buck
December 13, 1947 – August 3, 2010

Humanity bows its head in honor of the passing of a true people’s hero and
warrior for peace, freedom, and justice. Marilyn Buck passed away Tuesday,
August 3, 2010 at approximately 2:15 pm amongst comrades and friends.
Marilyn privately fought her cancer just as gallantly as she publicly fought against the cancers of oppression, exploitation, classism, and racism
in a place called America.
Freedom fighters, peace-loving people of the world, human rights activists, community folks, families, friends, and fellow prisoners, all salute you Marilyn. The people salute you! Your life has taught us strength, resistance
against injustice, courage in the face of death, self-esteem, love for our
neighbor and the underprivileged, compassion for the weak and downtrodden,
solidarity amongst the races, leadership, and humility.
Our Movement, our national liberation struggles, our undergrounds and abovegrounds, our formations, our community programs, our collectives and organizations, and all the midnight oil ever burned, owes you nothing but our utmost appreciation,
admiration, respect, prayers, and love.
Rest in peace with hope from the other side that the torch you left will be passed on!
