Perhaps Coming to a Campus Near You

British students loudly protest tuition fee hikes and spending cuts on education.

If there's one thing that might cause American youth to abandon their usual fatalistic passivity, it's the prospect of tuition hikes and education spending cuts.  We've already seen some brush fires in California, and CUNY students here in New York certainly would not take something like this lying down.

Remember folks, all this pain and austerity is about the health of the creditors, and not about the health of the European nations or their populations.

In my misspent youth, I actually remember this happening before:

(c 1982: Student protests, in California)

"Reagan said Cut-back, we say FIGHT BACK!"
