I was one of these little red dots.
So, the government want to raise college fees in Ireland. Last year the fees were raised to 2,000 euro and masked under the disguise of “Student Contribution Fees”. And in the next budget they want to raise the fees to about 5,000 euro. I have no money. I could barely afford to go to college this year. The fees are meant to increase in the upcoming years.
So that is what we protested today. No fees! Save the grant!
Let me finish my degree, please. There’s not much else I can do in life. I need to live in a library.
