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.”

ELECT SOCIALISTS TO FIGHT THE CUTS, NOT MAKE THEM!

All the main parties in the election campaign have dodged, ducked and dived to avoid the biggest issue facing working class people – the cuts. They all support cuts to public services and jobs and the privatisation of services.While lecturing us that there is not enough money to fund services, without a hint of shame the sectarian parties are outbidding each other over how much they want to slash corporation tax on the banks and for big business! They want to cut an additional £300m a year from hospitals and schools to give to big business in the form of a cut in corporation tax.
