Strange that the People First/ULA ARE organising this event.I would have thought that the local SiPTU branch would have marked the centenary.Maybe they are doing something else?.

Is Ross no longer a member of the IRSP?

author by Jamespublication date Mon Sep 19, 2011 22:55author address author phone Report this post to the editors

I would be disappointed if Ross has left the IRSP. He was a very good and intelligent republican socialist activist and would be a shame for him to be lost to that struggle and end up in the ULA. Particularly in light to the response by some elements within the ULA to the most recent attacks on the Short Strand community

He simply grew up. I highly doubt he's talking about Chechens and the RAF these days with the likes of Bree. Whatever faults of the ULA has it has it's act together in ways that the few RSM activists who did help out in the campaign couldn't help but notice and then inevitably contrast with their now former movement. The IRSP has been around four decades or so and the most recent excitement is that it was able to get a few members to man a stall in Belfast. Anyone with more concern for the cause of labour would have done the same and left the lulz and INLA dress up to the teenagers and yank wannabees.
