mpA protest will be held on Wednesday, July 13th from 3 pm outside Leinster House, Kildare Street. The demonstration aims to highlight the Government’s primary level education cutbacks. The protest has been organised by Deputy Mick Wallace and other members of the Technical Group. Listen to Mick here speaking to Newstalk's Sinead Hussey: Newstalk Interview The aim of the action is to highlight the consequences of these cuts. The main issues concerning those affected are the loss of SNAs, Resource Teachers for Travellers, Visiting Teacher Service for Travellers, Language Support Teachers and Rural Co-ordinators for Deis schools. School transport is also an issue with costs increasing as well as changes to routes. Members of the Technical Group will table a motion calling for the reversal of these education cuts during Private Members Business in the Dáil that evening. This motion will coincide with the protest and will request the Government to make changes required to restore equality in education. Deputy Wallace believes that, “People need to take to the streets to pressurise the Government to make changes. Unfortunately, those who shout the loudest in our society are most likely to be heard. For a Government that claimed to want to introduce fairness into our society, these cruel cuts expose them. It does appear that all talk of change is purely cosmetic. We still do not have governance based on the best interests of the Irish people. We should not tolerate this treatment”. This protest is the latest in a series of demonstrations against education cutbacks. On Tuesday, June 21st Wexford children, parents and SNAs voiced their anger outside the Dáil on the same issue. It is hoped that they will be joined by similar groups and individuals from across the country on July 13th.
