National Student Debt Week of Action

For those of you in our audience not planning on working on Wall Street after graduation, there’s a good chance you’re footing the bill for a good amount of student loans (hooray for the free market!).

To call attention to this unfortunate reality, Wesleyan Democratic Socialists are sponsoring a number of student debt related events and actions this week, including a petition-drive (find them in Usdan tomorrow! or sign it on the interwebz) requesting Sallie Mae “forgive all student debt after 5 years of payments” and “eliminate all interest on student loans” as well as a screening of Default: The Student Loan Documentary.
