OWS Goes Uptown

Fresh from Occupying Wall Street, demonstrators are training their sights on the City University of New York which is planning on raising tuition. Eric Hoover covered the demonstrations for The Chronicle of Higher Education.

“In a doorway, a middle-aged man yelled, ‘Go get a job!,” Hoover reported. “Brandon Peker, a recent graduate of the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, turned to look at the man.”

“’I have a job,’ he said, ‘but I choose to be here.’”

“Mr. Peker, who waits tables for a living, was just one of many marchers with no ties to CUNY.”
