Vale Tony Fitzgerald

South Australian Equal Opportunity Commission staff wish to pay tribute to Tony Fitzgerald, the Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Commissioner, who died on 24 February 2009. Tony was 56 and had fought bravely for 12 years against cancer.

Tony was a fearless defender of those affected by discrimination and disadvantage, and his work extended beyond the Northern Territory's borders. I will greatly miss his contributions to our national work through the Australian Council of Human Rights Agencies.

An article appearing in the January 2009 issue of the National Indigenous Times gives some great insights into his achievements and views.
