Northern Ireland Assembly Election Campaign: Financial Appeal

The Socialist Party is contesting the upcoming Northern Ireland Assembly to be held on Nov 26th.

FBU National Executive member Jim Barbour is standing in South Belfast and Tommy Black, a longstanding socialist and trade unionist, will be standing in East Belfast.

For too long politics in Northern Ireland has been dominated by sectarian right-wing parties. While the parties in the Stormont Executive argued about flags and emblems, there was no such disagreement about implementing Blairite policies of privatisation and other anti-working class policies such as water charges.

While aware of the uphill struggle in challenging these parties, we believe it is vitally important that a socialist alternative is provided for working class people in this election. The sectarian parties have major financial backing. The Socialist Party receives no money from big business and relies solely on raising cash from our members and the labour movement.

We are therefore asking for your support by making a donation towards the costs of the election campaign. We cannot leave the future of politics in Northern Ireland in the hands of the present parties so we would appreciate it if you could please give generously to help us build the alternative.

Thank you
