Inclusion Week debate: THB Disabled People Are Not Full Citizens

Thursday, 1st March 2012
18:00 until 21:00
Room 3029, DIT Aungier Street

The motion for this debate is "THB Disabled People Are Not Full Citizens of the State."


Proposing this motion will be our special guest Suzy Byrne, blogger for her website

The blog has won Best News and Current Affairs Blog in the Irish Blog Awards in 2008, 2009 and 2010 and won overall Best Irish Blog in 2009. In 2011 Suzy won Blogger/Website of the Year in the National Lesbian and Gay Federation GALAS Awards.

On the opposition will be Mark Higgins, DIT Debate Society member and speaker. Beginning his debate career in secondary school, he's won many awards nationally and is currently competing in the Irish Mace and Irish Times Debating Competitions.

This looks to be an interesting follow on from our highly contentious religion debate of 7th February with Hamza Tzortzis and Michael Nugent.
