Be the Change – October 2018

On 6 October 2018, People Before Profit in Cork will host a full-day political event entitled “Be the Change”. This will be a day of political discussion and talks where we will discuss issues such as the housing crisis, low-wages, how to stop the rise of the far-right, and how to continue the fight for women’s choice after the historic referendum result earlier this year.

The event will run from 12:00 – 18:00 in the Metropole Hotel on MacCurtain Street. This event is free and open to all.
