About People Before Profit Society

People Before Profit stands for a different form of politics: a radical politics for the 21st century. Eco-socialism, anti-austerity, anti-fascist and, people power.

On campus we represent the needs of students. Students are facing higher and higher rents, high fees, paid parking, all just to get an education. Things need to change and we represent that change. 

Since starting on campus we have launched several campaigns including a campaign for affordable houseing, opposing the waste of student funds, environmental campaigns and have brought a higher awareness to political issues on campus. 

We are an arm of a larger national party called People Before Profit who we coordinate with to bring student issues to the Dail. 

PBP has 4 TDs:

  • Richard Boyd Barrett (Dun Laoghaire)
  • Gino Kenny (Dublin Mid-West)
  • Brid Smith (Dublin South Central)
  • Paul Murphy (Dublin South West)

and a number of councillors elected in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown, Dublin City Council, South Dublin County Council, Sligo County Council & Belfast City Council.
