Over 2,000 students who protested in Cork against registration fee hikes, call for a just society

"Do not ever forget the lies and the betrayal and the mistreatment of this country by this government" (Keith O'Brien)

In a series of rolling protests organised by the Union of Student in Ireland, over 2,000 students demonstrated in Cork City on 1-12-2010 against proposed hikes to the student registration fee. In a strong address to the protesters in Grand Parade , University College Cork students union president, Keith O'Brien said it was monstrous that education funds were being cut and students were being forced to pay increased registration fee hikes by a government guilty of gross mismanagement.

"Do not ever forget the lies and the betrayal and the mistreatment of this country by this government," as he urged students to also oppose social welfare cuts and work to build a better fairer and more equal society. Among those who marched in solidarity with the students were members of the Socialist Party including Cllr Mick Barry who along with over 100 members of the Social Welfare Defenders Group had earlier occupied the Anglo Irish Bank branch in the city for 30 minutes.

Galway Unites Against Cuts activists have been out in force in Shop Street, Galway, the past two weeks mustering support for a major protest tomorrow against the inhuman, destructive cuts being imposed on the weakest and most vulnerable in Irish society by a criminal government without a mandate but with an extinction date and an overdue internment in the dust bin of history after the results of the forthcoming general election are declared.?

Please attend, if you can.?

Assemble at the Cathedral at 1PM.
