NU Students Join Occupy Colleges Walkout
Josh Reynolds, AP. 10/3/11.
With Wall Street and Boston successfully Occupied, now the focus of the Occupy movement is working on colleges. Today, an Occupy Colleges walkout is planned across the country as college students are being asked not to go to school. You all know students need a reason to skip a class.
Today's reason, according to an unnamed Northeastern student:
"We pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to an education industry that continuous to mimic the irresponsible, unaccountable, and unethical financial practices of Wall Street."
In New York, labor unions are expected to join an OccupyWall Street march today.
