Unity is strength!
The two main parties on the Irish radical left, the Anti-Austerity Alliance and People Before Profit, have joined forces to form a common front for the coming general election.
The new alliance has the backing of 4 TDs (Richard Boyd Barrett, Ruth Coppinger, Joe Higgins and Paul Murphy) and 27 councillors. In the election AAA-PBP will field over 30 candidates and hope to considerably increase the representation of the Left in the Dáil.
AAA-PBP will campaign to expose the sham ‘recovery’ falsely touted by the government parties and their friends in the media. The super-rich are getting even richer but there is no recovery for the vast majority of ordinary people.
