Stop the killings

Killing of police officer attempt to stir up sectarian division The Socialist Party has today condemned the killing of a 25 year old police officer in Omagh. Paddy Meehan, originally from the Omagh area and Socialist Party candidate for South Belfast stated “Dissident republicans have nothing to offer working people. This killing is designed to enflame sectarian conflict. It is also an attempt to deflect attention away from the need to unite working class communities against the cuts agenda of the sectarian parties.

“The methods of these groups only serve to provide a cover for the failed policies of the main political parties and strengthen the hand of those who wish to pursue repressive measures in working class communities.

“Working class people in Omagh and across the North must stand united against this killing and sectarian forces in both communities. The trade union and workers movement must take the lead in uniting ordinary people against attempts to drag us back to sectarian conflict.”
