Cuts must be actively resisted
The decision to axe the A-amp;E ward at Belfast City Hospital is not the first cut in the class war being imposed by our local politicians on workers' rights and conditions and it won't be the last.
The crisis in capitalism has merely served as an ideological cover for these continuing attacks on our standard of living.
While our trade union bosses and politicians continue to meet for tea and biscuits, basic living costs and inflation continue to rise above wages and the gap between the richest and the rest of us increases. The need to strike back collectively against our bosses and politicians by taking direct action is not only necessary, but vital if we are to build a confident and aggressive fightback.
We need to organise in our communities and workplaces to resist every cutback and job loss.
