I also hope that the IRSP, SD, McAliskey, the people around
'Fourthwrite' and 'The Blanket' can get it together enough to also run
some left-abstentionist candidates on a shared platform in the election
to the new Stormont.  A left-abstentionist platform could also reach out
to involve RSF and the 32-County Sovereignty Movement people, while each
component would still be free to put forward its own specific analysis.

Otherwise the field is left entirely open to New Sinn Fein and the
workerist-reformists of the SWP-led SEA platform as their only

Running people like Bernadette (and maybe Roisin?), Brendan Hughes,
Tommy McKearney, Tommy Gorman, John McAnulty and IRSPers would be quite
a formidable platform.
