Fees in 2010 – Build a movement to stop them!
By Liam Cullinane, Cork SY
ON 31 March, UCD and UCC had shutdowns organised by their respective Students Unions to varying degrees of success.
UCD and UCC Students Unions were mandated to organise the shutdowns by referenda put forward by Free Education For Everyone (F.E.E) which were passed by over 80% of the vote in both colleges. F.E.E has played a key role in the struggle against fees throughout the year. With the announcement of fees for 2010 imminent, a mass campaign is needed more than ever. F.E.E. will be at the forefront of doing so in the course of the next year.
