All parties must stand by women

The Workers Party has welcomed the suspension of three SDLP councillors for their failure to support a motion condemning the harassment of women outside reproductive rights clinics in Belfast.

Not to condemn the harassment of women, in any circumstances, is unforgivable.

These three SDLP councillors have effectively signaled their support for the continued bullying and abuse of women seeking to access medical information, advice and support.

This vote now raises serious questions about the position of other members of the SDLP, its councillors and MLAs.

It is imperative that all elected representaives – including those in the SDLP –  clearly and publicly state their opposition to the abuse, bullying and harrassment of women on the streets of Belfast and elsewhere and distance themselves immediately from Cllrs, Convery, Mullan and Boyle
