Appeal for workers’ solidarity!

We urge all our brothers, sisters and comrades in the international trade union movement to show their solidarity and support to the affected people, especially trade union members, workers and peasants.

We urgently need resources to provide relief to our affected brothers and sisters. Amongst the millions hit by the flooding more than 200 members of the TURCP (Trade Union Rights Campaign – Pakistan) and Progressive Workers Federation and their families have been affected. Their houses, crops and everything else have been wiped out. They need food, clean drinking water, medicines, tents and other daily utilities. We are trying to provide whatever is possible for us to provide to these families. But we urgently need your help, solidarity and support for these people. We request that all trade unions, union branches and workers and members of the trade unions support our campaign. Every penny you donate will be accounted for and reach the affected people.

Unions must fight to defend every job

At the end of January, Arlene Foster, the Minister responsible for job creation, bickered about the devolution of policing and justice powers to Stormont while 350 manufacturing job losses in Belfast were announced. This was just another demonstration of the complete inability of the main parties to deal with the crisis facing working-class people.

Hughes Christensen, a drill-bit manufacturer which has been based in East Belfast for over 50 years, announced that it would be closing its doors with the loss of 210 jobs. This firm is hugely profitable, with $47 million handed over to shareholders in the last quarter of 2009. The company also received handouts worth over £5million from taxpayers’ pockets through Invest NI.

Racist attacks in South Belfast

We reprint a collection of leaflet, articles, press releases and letters that were produced during the campaign to stop racist attacks on Roma families on the Lisburn Road. Socialist Party members who live in the area played a key role in organising local residents to oppose racism and fight for jobs and homes.

Russia – Terror returns to Moscow

For workers’ unity against terror, repression, racism and capitalism!

Thirty eight people died and over 70 were badly injured when two bombs exploded on the Moscow metro during yesterday’s morning rush hour. This is not just a tragedy in which working people died, but an act intended to terrify people, an act which will have serious social and political consequences.
