It’s been too long. In the last two weeks I have been to Stormont twice to lobby the politicians on the Education Cuts.
I’ve talked to the DEL Minister Stephen Farry to give the student perspective on the cuts and how they will affect the current student. Hopefully this will be well portrayed to the Executive.
I also talked with the Special Advisors to the First Minister Peter Robinson. This was to let them know the student position and how cutting education would be detrimental both to current students and to the Northern Ireland society. I also told them about the Student Union’s policy on not increasing student fees.
One last thing – if you haven’t written to your local MLAs and representatives WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Find more info on the site.
Take care everyone!
