Scribe of Redfern driven by politics - Trevor Davies, 1956-2011 - SHM Obituary
This Sydney Morning Herald Obituary to Trevor Davies written by Malcolm Brown and was published on Saturday 9 July 2011. It was fitting that this was published as his beloved Labor party held its NSW State Conference to talk about returning to the grass roots Trevor championed. It was also fitting for someone who championed local independent media that the front page of the SMH on that day read "Murdoch under siege". To clarify one inaccuracy on the SMH obituary, Trevor was one of the founders of REDWatch which is a residents group and not a journal.
