Partition was designed to prolong the colonial dominance of Ireland by the imperialist British State A citizen of Ireland could never celebrate partition Instead today we honour a true citizen; United Irish revolutionary Thomas Russell who was executed on this day in 1803

Always good to visit @The_TUC in London to speak with Frances OGrady and her team The rise of precarious work, stagnating wages & cost of living crisis requires a new deal for workers & urgent strengthening of trade Union bargaining rights in Britain, Ireland & across the world
