“student debt is violence”
You can’t satisfy the left. Nothing is ever good enough. How do the people at Columbia not know this?
Campus Reform reports:
Socialist students ‘disrupt’ campus…even after school bows to their demands
Columbia University students hosted on-campus protests, even after the school bowed to many of their tuition demands.
As acknowledged in a statement from Columbia’s Young Democratic Socialists of America chapter, the university’s first round of concessions “would not have happened without the pressure student strikers have put on the administration.”
Accordingly, organizers hosted a press conference outside the home of Columbia President Lee Bollinger, and hundreds of students hosted a “socially-distanced rally” on Sunday. The group was New York City mayoral candidate Dianne Morales and City Council candidate Maria Ordoñez.
During that rally, students displayed a banner that read “Education for all.” One self-identified lamented how she graduated from Columbia Law School with $100,000 in debt. Others at the rally chanted at one point “student debt is violence.”
@TahanieNYC: “Tuition should be free. We should not force people to choose between food on the table and an education…we shouldn’t force our children to make our parents give up retirement and work long hours just to be in debt, chose between owning a home and having a degree.” pic.twitter.com/8Jt6QmFJwc
