‘United movement’ needed against racist attacks

NWS_20140117_NEW_016_30324550_I2East Belfast Socialist Party representative Tommy Black has condemned the recent spate of racist attacks in the area and called for working-class unity against the thugs responsible.

Tommy said: –
“The racist thugs carrying out these attacks on innocent families are nothing but cowards. They know that their actions are sickening to the vast majority of people in east Belfast. But they don’t exist in a vacuum – they use the constant demonisation of immigrants by right-wing politicians and the gutter press to justify their actions.”

“The austerity policies of the ConDem government and the Assembly Executive are responsible for the lack of jobs and social housing, not immigrants. Racism and sectarianism only serve to divide working-class people. We need a united movement to challenge all forms of prejudice and fight for a better life for all.”

Local trade union activists are planning to organise a protest to demonstrate community opposition to racism.

Bombardier Jobs Threat: Market Fails Workers, Public Ownership the Solution

If upheld, this effectively blocks sales and leasing of the C-Series within the US, which represents 50% of the market, and puts in jeopardy the entire programme. Without the C-Series programme, the future of Bombardier in Northern Ireland is very much at risk.
