DCU YFG Make a Difference

DCU Raise the Bar!

DCU Young Fine Gael (YFG) has tonight, Wednesday October 27th, taken the decision to actively campaign for a yes vote in the upcoming referendum on USI affiliation. Speaking after its committee meeting, Chairperson of the society Keith Hoare stated why DCU YFG has decided to campaign in the referendum:

"Our first priority as a society in DCU is to act in the best interests of the student body. We have a responsibility to show leadership and guidance to students when needed and with this crucial referendum, that time is now and we won't neglect that fundamental duty which applies to EVERY club and society."

"We are disappointed that Ogra Fianna Fail and Labour Youth have decided to sit on the fence with regard to the USI referendum which marks one of the most important decisions to be made by DCU students in recent times. It will be crystal clear from our position that students will see YFG as the only political party on campus with:

The courage to stand up and be heard when needed.

The ability and determination to act in the best interests of DCU students. And finally and most importantly, The belief to do the right thing even if it is against the tide of opinion because our main priority is the welfare of DCU and us its students.

It is in the best interests of DCU that we vote YES and that is our core reason for advocating a YES vote."

So why have YFG come out in support of a YES vote?

Secretary of DCU YFG, Laura Wilson outlined exactly why a YES vote is vital; "We believe that a strong and effective voice in these tough times is priceless. The USI represent over 250,000 students and we in DCU cannot have the same impact on a national level by being on the outside looking in. There are of course advantages and disadvantages to voting either yes or no, but in the world we live in today the benefits that the USI will bring to DCU will far outweigh the disadvantages."

Many on the no side of the campaign are of the view that the USI needs to be reformed. Yes, perhaps it does but we in DCU won't have any say in that by being stuck on the outside, isolated and without the invaluable strength and support offered by the largest representative body of students in Ireland. Finally, NUI Maynooth have embraced this opportunity and now it is our time in DCU to also to the right thing for our college and for our future. Vote YES," concluded Laura Wilson.
