    US Representative John Lewis, a pioneer of the civil rights movement and long-time member of the US House of Representatives, has died, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Saturday.

    Lewis, who had declared in December that he had progressed pancreatic malignant growth was 80.

    “John Lewis was a titan of social equality development whose integrity, confidence and grit changed our country – from the assurance with which he met segregation at lunch counters and on Freedom Rides, to the mental fortitude, he appeared like a youngster looking down savagery and demise on Edmund Pettus Bridge, to the ethical authority he brought to the Congress for over 30 years,” Pelosi said in an announcement. “In the Congress, John Lewis was loved and cherished on the two sides of the walkway and the two sides of the Capitol. We all were lowered to consider Congressman Lewis an associate, and are devastated by his passing.”

    Tributes poured in from different government officials.

    “John Lewis was a symbol who battled with each ounce of his being to propel the reason for social liberties for all Americans,” said Senator Kamala Harris, the main African American to speak to California in the Senate, on Twitter. “I’m crushed for his family, companions, staff – and every one of those whose lives he contacted.
