In Memory of Anthony Lawson

Published on January 31, 2015

Anthony Lawson passed away on the 8th of January, 2015 due to colon cancer. This video will be the final one on his channel.

The months leading up to his death were filled with much anguish and confusion, as after an operation to fix his inguinal hernia there were a series of follow-ups and other procedures to determine the causes of the severe back pain that followed. In the end, the cancer was discovered on New Year’s Eve, far too late to have anything done, and his mental state as a result was too erratic for him to truly know what was wrong.

The medical costs have placed the family in a tight situation, so if anyone would like to make a donation, however small, please send an email to

  1. Oh, so saddening

  2. A principled voice (such a voice!) and expert videographer for humanity has fallen silent. I am deeply saddened by this news. Anthony sensed and reported with visceral certainty the wrongs visited upon the hapless Christians and Muslims of Palestine by the criminally psychotic ideology Zionism and its adherents. I am duly proud that I once facilitated Anthony’s voiceover of a superior article on Palestine-Israel written by New Mexico’s Joe Mowrey; it was presented multiple times on the Oahu public-access TV system circa 2006 by me and my co-producer, the since-departed Dr. Ramsis G. Lutfy. May both R.I.P.

    • I just found that I was off by 4 years in my comment above. The correct year is 2010, and the title of Anthony Lawson’s video (and Joe Mowrey’s article) is “Gaza In Plain Language.” Dr. Lutfy and I first aired it in February, 2010. Should have checked my facts….
