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.”

Cameron turns back clock on women’s rights

David Cameron's comments on abortion last week underlined the danger of increased attacks on women's rights if the Tories win the general election.

The Tory leader told The Catholic Herald: "The way medical science and technology have developed in the past few decades does mean that an upper limit [on abortion] of 20 or 22 weeks would be sensible". The current law allows for an abortion up to 24 weeks of pregnancy.

Apparently, Cameron thinks he knows better than the medical and scientific experts who investigated the issue as recently as 2007 and concluded that there is no evidence that foetal viability has improved since the last time the upper limit was changed.
