In the last two weeks, activists (both staff and students) from the Social Solidarity Network and Free Education for Everyone have been attempting to organise against the honorary professorship awarded to Bertie Ahern T.D by the National University of Ireland Maynooth.
On the 16th of November, a meeting called to plan future actions attracted a large mix of students, including many from outside the FEE/SSN activist groupings on campus. It was decided that targetting the University administration was the best tactic from here, with Berties own day in the sun still the most tightly guarded secret on campus.
Free Education for Everyone NUI Maynooth appeal to anyone with information on Bertie Ahern in NUI Maynooth to email us, with full confidentiality promised, at email@example.com
Students on campus have decided to aim to collect hundreds of signatures to deliver to the University administration, to highlight the anger students feel towards the appointment of Bertie Ahern T.D, at a time cutbacks are crippling our University. If you’d like a copy of the petition, feel free to email us and get in touch.
ALSO, various left wing groups on campus, including Free Education for Everyone, will be mobilising to support Maynooth staff on the picket lines next Tuesday. Further details will be posted here following planned consultation with University staff.
