Paddy has organized many campaigns in South Belfast such as the anti-water charges We Won’t Pay Campaign, Youth Fight for Jobs, and has played a leading role in Northern Ireland Students Assembly protests against tuition fees and cuts to Education Maintenance Allowance.
Paddy told socialistpartyni.net “Young people have very little future if the policies of the main parties are implemented. Their cuts will destroy thousands of jobs and vital public services which the most vulnerable rely on. People have an opportunity in this election to send a message out to the main parties that their cuts will be fought. That is why I am standing in this election.
“Instead of voting to increase domestic rates on Belfast City Council and at the same time make cuts to council services, I will stand firmly on the side of ordinary people and seek to build a united opposition against the main parties cuts.”
