Brady commends workers for stand against austerity
Sinn Féin MLA Mickey Brady has commended all those who took part in today's industrial action against austerity.
The Newry and Armagh MLA said;
"All across the North today thousands of people took to the streets and picket lines to demonstrate against toe austerity policies of the Tory-led British government at Westminster.
"Sinn Féin representatives and activists joined workers on picket lines and at demonstrations to stand up for workers in the face of this ideologically driven assault on the most vulnerable in society by the Tories.
"The scale of support for today's demonstrations shows the extent of opposition to the extreme austerity policies of a cabinet of millionaires.
"I commend all those who took part in today's industrial action and encourage them to continue the campaign against austerity as part of a combined effort involving political pressure, community opposition and industrial action."
