Strike action should be part of united effort against austerity – Adams
Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams TD has said Sinn Féin supported today's strike action by workers in the North against Tory cuts.
Gerry Adams said:
“Sinn Féin supports today's industrial action against the Tory cuts agenda by workers across the North.
“The Tory-led British government has pursued a brutal austerity agenda in the north of Ireland.
“Over one-and-a-half billion pounds has been stripped away from the North by London.
“The Stormont House Agreement did not resolve this issue of British Tory cuts to the block grant.
“Sinn Féin will continue to oppose austerity North and South and today's industrial action should form part of a united effort against austerity, involving political pressure, community opposition and industrial action.”
