Tommy Black says Harbour land must be given back to the people
Tommy Black, Socialist Party candidate for East Belfast, today called for the land in the Harbour Estate to be “given back to the people of Belfast”.
“Last week we had politicians from all the main parties falling over themselves to welcome the proposed development of the old Sirocco site.
“This follows the handing over of much of the Harbour estate to Fred Olsen. This area will be used to make money for property speculators, not to provide well paid jobs and much needed social housing for all the people of East Belfast.
“The main parties are little more than highly paid Estate Agents, busy selling off land, schools and other public facilities.
“My voice in the Assembly will be used to keep our public land and services public!”
