Fighting Fees Update

By Lucian Verkin

THE INTRODUCTION of third-level fees will be a devastating blow to young people throughout the country.

As a member of Socialist Youth, I have rallied my school’s Student Council to take action in our city of Waterford. We plan to reach out to all secondary school students in the city by visiting their schools and gathering a petition in hopes of saving our right to an education. I believe that through a unified effort, such as this, and on a grander scale, will be able to express the frustration of young people loudly for all to hear. Wish us luck in our efforts, so that we may be a step closer to building a campaign that can win this vital struggle.
