In celebration of the lifelong service to the communist movement of Comrades Marie and Jack Shapiro, a memorial stone has been placed in Highgate Cemetery (opposite the grave of Karl Marx).
Close family and friends, including representatives of the CPGB-ML, gathered there on Sunday 17 October (the day that Marie and Jack regularly celebrated the Glorious October Revolution) to give a red salute to two staunch fighters for communism.
The inscription on the stone reads:
“Marie and Jack
“All their lives, all their strength, was given to the finest cause: the liberation of humankind.
“We miss you”
