Assembly parties deliver cuts and sectarianism

After the general election and the looming cuts facing Northern Ireland these series of articles bring together the Socialist Party’s analysis of what is happening both inside and outside the Assembly.

They also deal with the character of the dissident groups and the dangers of increasing sectarianism in society.

Some these articles also point to the massive attacks on the public sector being implemented with the consent of all the Executive parties and the prospect for united struggles of workers and young people.
