Yesterday our classmates joined other university students from places like CUNY, New School and Columbia, in a march to Foley Square. I made a video, just like the other 10,000 people gawking and snapping shots on their iPhones did. It was a peaceful march, although reports indicate that the mood changed drastically later in the evening, with more arrests and police intervention. I won’t say much here, because there is already so much chatter about Occupy Wall Street taking place online, in university classrooms, and on the street.
I think that this sort of dialogue can be very productive for those of us plastics who are struggling with student debt and big questions about what comes after four years of stimulating but perhaps impractical intellectual work. Enjoy.
