Northern Ireland needs Integrated Education
‘Shared Education’ report
The Workers Party has described the report of the Ministerial Advisory Group on Shared Education as “disappointing, lacking in imagination and vision and failing to see what a new education system could contribute to the building of a Northern Ireland free from sectarian division ”

Good Friday Agreement
15th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement
In many ways, not least the ending of terrorist campaigns, Northern Ireland today is a better place than before.
However that should not blind us to the fact that fifteen years on we have not realised the ambition of a new Northern Ireland free from sectarianism and division.
The DUP and Sinn Fein are merely managing division in society, not overcoming it.

The writing’s on the wall
There are more ‘peace walls’ in Northern Ireland now than there were when the Good Friday Agreement was signed in 1998.
The Workers Party has always been a strong opponent of sectarianism and division. The Party also believes that the walls and barriers which divide people in towns and cities across Northern Ireland should come down.
On the 15th anniversary of the signing of the Good Friday Agreement the BBC’s Chris Buckler looks at ‘peace walls’ and some of the issues around them. His report also features footage of the Party’s ‘Bring Down the Walls’ mural in Northumberland Street in Belfast.
