Following so close after the death of Peter Conway, losing a human rights legal giant like Peter Williams seems even more tragic.
I met Peter a handful of times, his passion and dedication to standing up to authority was a rare trait in a nation as ovine as ours.
His fearless pursuit of justice is something we rarely see and mourning it passing is important.
He was a hero who fought with kindness and intelligence. We have so few heroes left in NZ.
Much love and respects to his whanau. Aotearoa is a dimmer place for his passing.
