“Assembly cuts will fuel sectarianism”


Tommy Black of the Stop the Cuts Campaign today stated:

“The recent trouble on the Lower Newtownards Road demonstrates that the issue of sectarianism has not gone away.  The policies of the Assembly parties will in fact fuel sectarianism.  Their cuts will mean less jobs and services and more deprivation and despair.

Interview: RVH Security Officers keep up their fight against cuts

From last October security officers at the Royal Victoria Hospital (RVH) in Belfast have mounted a determined campaign against cuts. This campaign began because security officers could no longer stand by and watch the Belfast Trust systematically dismantle the security department through massive job cuts and attacks on their terms and conditions. The service has already seen over half the workforce cut. A review of the security service by the senior management will result in increased workload and responsibility, risking the health and safety of patients, staff and security officers. The Socialist spoke with one security officer on the current status of their courageous fight against cuts. Due to threats of disciplinary action, this interview was given anonymously.
