Trump Is Out But Biden Doesn’t Represent Progress

People Before Profit Cllr Shaun Harkin said,
 
“The defeat of Trump has been celebrated in Derry and across Ireland. 
 
However, Democratic President-elect Joe Biden doesn’t represent progress. That he isn’t Trump was good enough for a majority of people in the US. 
 
For us here in Derry, the enemy of my enemy is not always our friend. 
 
The Derry & Strabane Council minus the opposition of DUP/Aontù accepted my amendment this evening calling on the incoming Biden-Harris US adminstration “to join Derry and Strabane Council in standing in solidarity with the Palestinian people by supporting the BDS campaign; by undoing the Trump administration’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moving the US embassy there. 
 
“Council also encourages the incoming Biden-Harris administration to undo Trump’s anti-climate science environmental policies, racist criminal justice policies, anti-women’s rights policies and economic policies enriching billionaires and the 1% at the expense of the majority in the US and globally.”
