    Students from secondary schools and universities in Belfast (and further afield, if you're interested) have been invited to join the protest this Thursday against the increased and uncapped tuition fees proposal - which will be decided on this week by the Minister for Higher Education.

    It's not long now until the Con-Dems try to pass their education cuts through parliament. That's why Northern Ireland, already vulnerable to top down instruction from London, have to put pressure on politicians to publicly reject Tory education cuts. e.g. Higher tuition fees and the destruction of EMA
    Wales has already been spared the cuts due to public pressure, let's try and do it here too.
    ALL STUDENTS WELCOME
    Education is a right, not a privilege.

    JOIN THE PROTEST ON 9TH DECEMBER 2010
    @ THE CITY HALL, BELFAST
    1.30pm - 4.30pm

    Look man, I'm all for that.
    But hey, whilst we're here, and our devolved government is looking to up the fees, I guess we'll have to create a wee bit of noise. Besides, we'd have to do it if we were part of the Republic too.

    you do realize the the fee rises are necessary? moreso if health care cuts are to be avoided

    So in every way that actually matters?

    and if you think it would be a matter of 'just splitting' than you're an ignorant fool.
