The Passing of Marwan Burgan


Marwan Burgan, a good friend to all Fairfax Democrats, passed away. He put up a brave battle against cancer for many years before dying Thursday night. Sam Rasoul has more to say about this gentle man and dedicated activist at Blue Commonwealth.

I didn't know Marwan very well, but I did know him for many years. He was a fixture at Democratic events and was with the Fairfax Dems at the 2004 Democratic Convention in Boston. He also was active in pursuing dialogue between Jews and Palestinians. We've lost an important voice for peace, understanding, and tolerance.

A memorial service for him is planned tomorrow (Sunday) at Poets and Busboys.
Date: Sunday March 8
Time: 8am - 10am
Place: The 5TH & K Busboys and Poets,
1025 5th Street NW, Washington DC 20001
