We are an alliance of left wing groups, including the People Before Profit Alliance and individuals who came together for the General Election 2011.
The Alliance is opposed to the governments’ bailouts and the slash and burn policies which are only making the crisis worse. In the general election we aim to provide a real alternative to the establishment parties as well as Labour and Sinn Fein, who also accept the capitalist market and refuse to rule out coalition with right wing parties. The approach of a Fine Gael / Labour government in power would not be fundamentally different than this government.
The ULA stood candidates including Cllr Richard Boyd Barrett (PBPA), Cllr Joan Collins (PBPA), MEP Joe Higgins (SP) & Cllr Seamus Healy (TWUG) throughout the country and all the above were elected.
