Former Visteon worker to speak in West Belfast


Press releaseA former Visteon worker will be speaking this Saturday 9th May in An Culturlann, in a public meeting organised by the Workers Solidarity Movement.

Dessie McEnroe will be speaking in a personal capacity about the workplace occupation, its lessons and practical advice to workers facing similar cut backs. WSM member, Davy Carlin will also be speaking on building solidarity with workers in struggle, the politics of anarchism and direct action.

WSM spokesperson, Michael McGovern said: “The direct action taken by the Visteon workers, the support and solidarity by fellow trade unionists and working-class communities show that we are far from powerless in resisting job and pay cuts.

Adding: This is in stark contrast to inaction from our Stormont administration which has nailed itself to the flag of capital along time ago. A system which puts the profits and privileges of a few before the needs and desires of working people.”

The public meeting will take place at 2pm in the An Culturlann, 216 Falls Rd, Belfast.
