FEE needs your help!
national | education | press release Monday January 26, 2009 10:30 by Emma Beckett - Free Education for Everyone
Crucial national demonstration on 4 February - FEE needs your help to build for it!
It is now crystal clear that the government will attempt to bring in some form of student fees (quite possibly from Sept 09). Batt O'Keeffe has indicated that he will bring such a proposal to the cabinet towards the start of April. Therefore, the building of a movement of students, linking up with college workers and school students, is essential if we want to defeat this plan and maintain a right to free fees.
The Union of Students in Ireland (USI) has called a national demonstration for Wednesday week (4 February) at 1.30pm at the Garden of Remembrance. This is an absolutely crucial protest in the building of a movement to defeat fees. A turnout of over 20,000, plus a strategy of building a movement flowing from that in the local colleges can begin the process of knocking the government back.

FEE might be interested in these moves to create a Global Week of Action against the ommercialisation of education and against fees.
The weeks takes place in April 2009, so now is the time to get active and get networking.
Hi Mark, we've been in touch with Mo. We will hopefully have something planned for that week.
I'll leave it to somebody else to write down a full report, needless to say after the USI demo a sizeable group of students decided to march on to the Dail, where a sitdown took place. Speeches were made on the effect of fees had in the north, and the need to build a mass movement against them down here- including the need to call for a one day shut down of Irish unis. After the sitdown the group marched on to D.I.T and the USI public meeting.
