Planting the tree

Here are some photos from 27 September 2012 when a tree was planted for Richard Flint at Sussex University.


Comrades of Richard Flint in front of the tree planted in his honour, including Simon Fanshawe representing the University and Kelly McBride, president of the student union. Richard was president during 1979 until he was expelled.

The paving stone laid in Richard’s honour. The highly apposite quote is from situationist graffiti in Paris in 1968 “under the paving stones, the beach”.
