Following a large and angry demonstration of parents, special needs assistants, teachers and pupils outside the Dáil a debate took place on a motion presented by United Left Alliance and Independent TDs from the Dáil Technical Group opposing the Governments cuts.
Protesters came from all over the country and moving testimony was given from the speakers platform of the impact of these cuts. However despite this and the points made by TDs in the debate including Clare Daly Fine Gael and Labour shamefully stood over their cuts.
A national coordinated effort has emerged for a bigger protest against these cuts which will take place on the opening of the Dáil after the summer break.
