This website is dedicated to Alistair Hulett and is maintained by the Alistair Hulett Memorial Trust.
Alistair Hulett was a singer, songwriter, international socialist and revolutionary. He was a kind, gentle man who was committed to fighting for a better world – a world based on the principles of justice, equality, love and respect for all of humanity. The world was a better place for knowing him and is a sadder place for his loss. He left a great legacy in his music that will continue to bring inspiration to many who, like him, believe a better world was possible.
The site proudly continues the legacy in the form of his writing, recordings and the widespread influence he had through his activism on behalf of many social justice causes.
The mission of the Alistair Hulett Memorial Trust (UK), and the Alistair Hulett Memorial Fund (AU) is to help to promote social justice and equality through music and struggle.
