Unite against racist attacks

tommy windSpeaking on the latest in a series of racist attacks in East Belfast Tommy Black, Socialist Party representative stated

” There is no support amongst the vast majority of people in East Belfast for the racist attacks we have witnessed over recent days. This latest attack in the My Ladys road area involving a crowd armed with golf clubs is particularly sickening. Residents, community activists and trade unionists must unite and send a clear message to these thugs that Racism is not welcome in our area”

He added “It is the cuts and privatisation coming from Stormount that is fuelling the crisis in social housing, and is the real cause of the increasing poverty and deprivation in our community. We need jobs and homes in East Belfast, not racism”
