Occupy Student Debt – Refuse to Pay

I am very excited to see this movement. There is so much student debt in the US at the moment that even if a fraction of the students came together to stop paying their student debt it would have a huge effect on the economy. Those in debt actually have a huge power here and they are finally wising up to how they can throw their weight around and get some of their demands met. We can grab the economy by the tail and give it a good shake and make the politicians sit up and listen. I fully agree that education should be free and of good quality. I have been waiting for this idea to catch on. As we have seen, certain people will only listen to money, or the threat of the removal of a source of money. The excessive crack down by educational institutions of the Occupy Movement was the last straw. Their true character has been fully revealed.
I am very glad to see this debt peonage issue finally getting more attention, but we still need to spread the word. The sooner we get to 1 million signatures the sooner we can get the ball in our court. Please sign to show your support and share this with everyone you know, also, check out this excellent interview:
