A eulogy for Judy West by Greg Lowe There are a select few of us who have counted our own eras as pre-1980 and post-1980. Way back in mid August of that year, because of a chance close proximity to Azaria's tragedy at Ayer's Rock, several travelers were sucked into the vortex of that unnecessarily drawn-out affair, while the nation struggled to come to grips with what had really happened. By the time we were reacquainted with members of the West family in 'Alice' at the first inquest, there was common understanding we had collective personal knowledge that inured us from public anti-Chamberlain sentiment. A rapport rapidly developed. We were all very grateful for the coroner's ability to 'sort out the wheat from the chaff'. Sadly, it was to be the last time this sort of fearless judicial comprehension occurred for quite a while. Later events, officially sanctioned from above, were nought but a concocted police/scientific case against Azaria's parents. The injudicious behaviour culminating in the kangaroo court of the 2nd inquest remains a case-study for budding lawyers in how NOT to do it. It was apparent to many of we uncalled witnesses that the crown was intensely desperate to substitute fallacy for fact. It became clear that many people involved had far less integrity than ourselves. No worries, it was thought at that time of great anxiety. Surely, a trial would once again be able to 'sort out the wheat from the chaff'. In the meantime, we would simply have to weather the gathering storm. Although Judy admitted to being petrified at the prospect of any court appearance, her outward calm and gentle demeanour was an inspiration to all other nervous eye-witnesses. She was well aware the trial judge had done his best to sum up to the jury for acquittal. As we already knew, the reality was Azaria's parents had no case to answer. When that devastating Darwin decision was handed down, it blew us all away. The irony was none of us on-site had been believed, and because of that, justice had become tainted. Our implicit faith in police, scientists, the media, politicians and the High Court suddenly went AWOL. But knowledge is empowering. Judy generously gave of her time - volunteered to travel broadly, to speak at many public rallies held on the eastern half of the country, to protest the trial verdict. It was simply wrong. No doubt she also became firm friends with the operators at the local airport. Her compassion and humility, the preparedness to take a stand against such an obvious injustice, and a philosophy of gently treating others with dignity, all combined to endear her to others. I recall her once ending up a talk to a crowded hall with the rider - 'we may only be little people, but we do know right from wrong'. Am so pleased to have dropped in for a friendly chat and cuppa on our lap of Oz a few years ago. I remember that familiar twinkle in the eye when, in response to an outburst of chiackery, a comment was made with a chuckle 'YOU haven't changed!'. Judy, your memories will be fondly held within the hearts of many people. I salute you. Please say G'day to Bill for us, and may your guru/swami go with you. RIP.

Deepest sympathies on your loss, Steve.
