The opportunity achieve one’s full potential by means of third level education should not be prevented by economic factors.
The Green Party in Northern Ireland’s spokesperson Steven Agnew also lent the party’s support to students and their families by today attending and addressing the peaceful protests with the QUB Greens.
Steven was the only local political representative to address the lunchtime protest meeting in Belfast. Mr Agnew said: "The proposed removal of the cap on student fees will result on a two-tier system where only those who can afford it will be able to attend the top universities. University selection should be based simply on ability, not ability to pay.
