Our Friend U.S. Rep Payne

 

THE PASSING OF THE HONORABLE DONALD M. PAYNE (NJ) D-10TH

The membership, family and friends of the Irish American Unity Conference were deeply saddened to hear of the passing
of our friend Representative Donald M. Payne of New Jersey. We will always be grateful for his devotion to the search for truth 
and justice in the conflict in Ireland. He consistently impressed those of us in America with his passion for the cause of justice and for an end to the uniformed
thuggery of British security forces. Many whom he worked with in the six counties of Ireland, who have seen showboaters come and go, remarked that he 
exuded a sincerity, empathy and dignity that was at once re-assuring and powerful.   He was not a man to seek laurels for his every achievement but we are  
confident he will one day be clothed in the righteousness and truth he worked so hard to realize for the victims of conflict and the less fortunate near and far.

Statement of Thomas J. Burke Jr., National President on behalf of the National Board.

    Congressman Payne was one of the most diligent and sincere individuals in Congress. He was cared about people, cared about the Irish struggle and could relate it to the civil rights struggles of African Americans. He will be greatly missed.
