$500 mill of debt’s a-burnin – More great action from Chile on Student Debt

As we demonstrated on a previous show, in an interview with Chilean Anarchists, Chile has some strong grassroots mojo. Due to our concerns over student debt, and the quality of education in general, this story caught my eye.

This act of political fire sports pairs nicely with Strike Debt’s Rolling Jubilee initiative, to student debt relief. But this action has a distinct 1971/old-school flair.

It’s inspiring to see a multifaceted set of tactics coming together to address the grossly disproportionate debt that exists within our culture of higher education. If you’re curious about how school debt resistance is carried out, be sure to check-out Strike Debt’s “Debt Resisters’ Operation Manual (DROM).”
