Occupy Colleges could become largest student protest in 40 years
12 October 2011 - Thursday could see the biggest student protest on US soil since 1970.

Occupy Colleges has announced their next plan of action. A national student day of protest has been set for Thursday, October 13, as part of a nationwide walkout and student solidarity protest in support of Occupy Wall Street. Students at over 100 colleges are planning on participating.

Some are taking action sooner. Student protesters at UMASS have intentions of occupying a building on campus as we speak (at time of publishing: 2pm EST on Wednesday). read more w/many backlinks

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  Can you OccupyBusinessSchool? (5+ / 0-)

    If I was still an undergrad student and had the opportunity for largescale protest, that's where I would target my campus protest.

    It's the business schools that teach our future "Masters of the Universe" how to be sociopaths that only care about profits and don't care about other people.

    If I had the chance as a student, I would occupy my alma mater's College of Business until the school instituted a curriculum change that required all MBA, Business, Finance, Econ, etc... graduates to take a class on The Social Contract and the duty of good faith.

      I think the MBA program has led to the most corrupt business practices ever.  After all, if all you care about is the bottom line, the reason the business was started no longer matters.

        A few articles on just that have popped up, at least online, and their point, rightfully thought, is that the now so called titans of business are those with MBA's only. Not as what once was in the country, experienced trades with a better innovative way to do something starting a business, or the truly educated of many venues seeking more knowledge in fields and using that and ambition within for building something better or different.

        Those who warned about free trade, supplyside, ronnynomics, stated similar as it was instituted and have since, forecasting exactly when is now.

        Bottom line is our economics, wall street isn't there to invest in economic growth nor public companies, it's all about profit, individual and corporate!

        MBA's don't sweat and never have!!

      Social contract theory played an important historical role in the emergence of the idea that political authority must be derived from the consent of the governed.

  •  Please stop using hastags in titles (0+ / 0-)

    To repeat what I wrote yesterday:

    Stop using hashtags when discussing Occupy Wall Street outside of Twitter. In addition to confusing the vast majority of the country that still does not use Twitter, the use of the hashtags renders whatever content you wrote far more difficult to be found on search engines. As such, the use of hashtags ends up deflecting potentially interested and sympathetic members of the 99% from finding information on Occupy Wall Street. So if you want to reach more people, stop using the hashtags.
