May Day 2010

MAY DAY 2010
March Against Cuts and Privatisation! March for a Working Class Alternative!
March with the Socialist Party!

Assemble 11am, Sat 1st May, Writers Square, Donegall Street, Belfast

The annual May Day march organised by the trade union is taking place in Belfast this Saturday. May Day is an international celebration of the struggles of the labour movement. Trade unionists and working-class activists come together from across the North in the largest annual workers’ demonstration.

The Socialist Party will be participating in the march and putting forward our alternative to the job losses, wage cuts and attacks on services which all the main parties in Britain and Northern Ireland are united around, determined to make working-class and young people pay for the bosses’ economic crisis.

The march ends at the Arts College Square, where there is a festival with music and a bar and the Party will have a stall. Come along and march with the Socialist Party!

Fermanagh flooding

Communities victims of Executive inaction

After six weeks of rain in which there were only two dry days, many parts of Fermanagh were under water in the early weeks of December. The county, which is divided diagonally by Upper and Lower Lough Erne, saw many of its tributary rivers burst their banks and flow over fields and roads criss-crossing the countryside. The lough itself rose from about 45.8 metres to 48.2 metres flooding large areas of farmland leaving families living on raised positions cut-off as water engulfed their access roads and made them impassable. My own great-aunt had to be evacuated as her home in Innisroosk was cut off once again making sense of a townland name signifying an island. Many other families suffered this experience as inadequate infrastructure failed in the face of exceptional rainfall.

Haiti – Earthquake kills thousands

Disaster has struck the impoverished people of Haiti once again; a powerful earthquake, early on 13 January, toppled buildings in the capital Port-au-Prince. The 7.0 magnitude quake - the biggest recorded in this part of the Caribbean - left the capital’s 3 million people who live on hillside slums made of wood, tin and cheap concrete, particularly vulnerable.
