Farewell Norma Nord, peace activist and greens stalwart

All my love to Norma Nord’s family.

The amazing Norma passed away last week – aged 98?

Norma was a member of the Bayside Branch with me when I first joined the Greens Party 10 years ago.

Norma was part of the peace and workers’ rights movements.

She ran as a Greens candidate for the first time in her 80s.

In 2005 Norma doorknocked businesses with me in Bulimba during a state election.

She’s been quoted to have said “You can’t build anything without enthusiasm”.

Here’s to caring for people and the environment until right into my 90s.

You were an inspiration to me, Norma.

A memorial service will be held for Norma in the next few weeks – to celebrate her extraordinary life.
