The 6th of October is ‘National Day of Voter Registration’ and the Union of Students in Ireland (USI) are running a campaign across 24 student campuses in Ireland tomorrow to enable students to register to vote.
This Government backtracked on a pre-election pledge to students and increased college registration fees, up 50%. They have left students sleeping on couches because of the accommodation crisis, have slashed student grants and have cut allowances to those on apprenticeships.
At a time when people have been left in very difficult situations due to cuts and increased fees, increased rents etc., students have been left with poor counselling services again as a result of further cuts.
Register to vote, and use it to ensure people you can trust to fight for you can. #RockTheRegister
