Sinn Féin to support strike action - Brady

12 March, 2015 - by Mickey Brady

Sinn Féin MLA Mickey Brady has said his party will support tomorrow's strike action by trade unions against the austerity policies of the British government. 

The Newry and Armagh MLA said; 

"Sinn Féin will be supporting the industrial action planned by trade unionists for Friday. 

"We recognise the need to mobilise democratic resistance to austerity through industrial action.

"We are supporting the industrial action on the basis that the source of austerity in the North is the Tory-led British government in London and their policy of savage cuts.

"Sinn Féin elected representatives and activists will be taking part in demonstrations against austerity with trade unions as part of the industrial action. 

"We view this as part of a combined effort encompassing political pressure, community opposition and industrial action against austerity."
