Videos - US Student Debt Hits $1 Trillion, Occupy Protests Planned for Campuses Nationwide
KMC » 10am - Apr 25, 2012
Today marks what activists are calling 1-T Day: The day U.S. student debt reaches $1 trillion. A coalition of groups from Occupy Wall Street plan to gather on college campuses and communities around the country to protest record-high college costs, and call for an extension of low-interest rates on federally subsidized Stafford loans. In a bid to court the youth vote, President Obama weighed in on student debt on Tuesday with a speech at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. We're joined by Pamela Brown, a Ph.D. student who helped launch the "Occupy Student Debt Campaign" Pledge of Refusal; and David Harvey, a professor and author whose most recent book is "Rebel Cities: From the Right to the City to the Urban Revolution."
