With hundreds of thousands of people having taken to the streets in the great revolt over water charges and austerity as a whole and with a general election looming there is an urgent need for the left to unite its forces.
In this context the People Before Profit Alliance has issued an ‘Appeal for a Radical Left Alliance’
This appeal argues that:
A key strategic focus will be the need to promote an organised boycott of the charges. However, alongside this there is a growing realisation among many activists that there is a need for a parallel political challenge to the current ruling elite.
Such a challenge should promote clear anti-austerity policies, offer a positive vision of a different Ireland and outline a different way of doing politics so that it is connected with a desire for people power.
