“We need to re-order our priorities and we need to do it now”, says Lily Kerr, Workers Party representative in North Belfast
“Politics and the media are dominated daily by petty disputes over ‘who-said-what’, what flag to fly, what title to give someone and who’s going to be the First Minister”, she said
“Meanwhile, in the real world, families are going hungry, children are going without heat and workers, as well as those people on benefits, are forced to use food banks to try and make ends meet”.
For as long as politics here is reduced versions of Orange and Green then ordinary working people will continue to be used as no more than sectarian cannon fodder.
“Rethinking our priorities means putting people first in a socialist society”, Lily said
