"USI haven't gone away- and we're gonna wreck your heads, until students get their way!"

USI hold protest at Fianna Fail Green party attacks on those who want to participate in the knowledge society.

n Budget 2010, the Government took away the Maintenance Grant for students on the Back To Work Allowance (BTEA) who are entering full time, 3rd level courses. In response to this, USI organised a protest at the Department of Education, Marlborough Street Dublin 28th April 2010 regarding this disgraceful attack on lifelong learning and education.
