Howard Clark

With deep sadness we must announce that last night WRI Chair Howard Clark passed away.

Howard was Chair of WRI since 2006, and earlier worked for many years as Coordinator of WRI in London before moving to live with Yolanda Juarros Barcenilla in Spain.

He is leaving a gap we are still unable to fully grasp. War Resisters' International is losing with him a good friend, a tireless and committed peace worker, a sharp mind and organizer, and his institutional memory reaching back many decades.

Our thoughts are with Yolanda and their two children, Ismael and Violeta, at this tragic time.

Information about memorials and an obituary can be found on this website later.
