What Really Matters?
This Election has been dominated by talk of sectarian pacts, inter-party deals and paper candidates.
The major parties have sought to turn the campaign into yet another sectarian headcount – this time based on Brexit and the Border: the reality is that it is about neither.
In its eve of poll video the Party summarises its recent election manifesto and sets out What Really Matters for working class people – employed, unemployed, young people or pensioners.
This Thursday June 8th make your vote a class act – vote Conor Campbell in West Belfast and Gemma Weir in North Belfast

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.

The ‘Slugger O’Toole’ blog site features the Workers Party in the latest of its pre-election interviews.
“The Workers Party have a long tradition of involvement in political life in Northern Ireland. At all times we have sought to cross the sectarian divide, to particularly reach out to working class people, and to put on the political agenda a social and economic agenda because for long many a year social and economic issues were relegated to the bottom of political debate”. John Lowry
