RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE!

Civil Unrest Brewing in the US: Occupy Wall Street Protests in New York City



If corporate news (i.e. the major networks) is your main source of information, you probably have heard little about this, but the protests against capitalism-gone-awry in New York City are a big deal, and very meaningful.

If you can attend the protests, please do. You can also support the cause by checking out the website.

Change happens on many fronts. Political demonstrations still have an impact- but we must stay with it. Be part of it.

Student Debt Emergency will be heading to NYC for Occupy Wall Street and to DC (for the protests planned there beginning October 6th).

What do you plan to do?

  1. Currently in default, unemployed, student loan has climbed to 225,000, cant get hired due to low credit score, basically it has come down to leaving the country, hitting the lottery or dying, what a wonderful life this has turned out to be!!

  2. @ Michael 1:57pm. Don't lose hope. You have plenty of company. The political energy around this issue is starting to shift. The credit score scam you refer to is a particularly brutal slap in the face to those who enslave themselves to student loans. It is another reason to think twice about taking on student loan debt. Hang in there.

  3. Oh, and apparently there is a bill right now in Congress to get rid of bankruptcy exemption status for private student loan debt.

    Here's a link for details: http://durbin.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/private-student-loan-stories

    By the way, not a word on the ABA site about this or even on the National Lawyers Guild where they allegedly go to protests to keep people from being attacked by police.
