Portrait by James Mahaney
Rest in Power, Jose
Jose A. Soler
June 1, 1945 - April 20, 2020

Jose lectured with infectious enthusiasm and gave rousing, informative rally speeches about key social justice and human rights struggles out of his experiential and scholarly knowledge about: the media  and labor, The Workers' Education Movement, the history and culture of Puerto Rico and Marxism/Leninism. Aside from his abiding passion for photography, Jose brought his seemingly endless energy, his personal warmth, upbeat disposition, deeply, broadly informed intelligence and wise insights to the endeavors of his life's work. 


Most recently Jose was a co-leader of the New Bedford Coalition To Save Schools, on the National Steering Committee of Save Our Schools, and on The Board of Citizens For Public Schools.

The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling - their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability. Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them. Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.
