Web Exclusive: March Fourth Protests

On Monday, March 4 (“march forth”) protesters brought huge, eye-catching props to the UW Tacoma campus to raise awareness of the growing amount of student debt in the U.S.

Alan Collinge of StudentLoanJustice.org and Bill Moyer of the Backbone Campaign based in Vashon Island brought a huge graduation cap with the words “EDUCATION IS A HUMAN RIGHT” written on it along with a giant ball and chain inscribed with “$1 TRILLION”, the total amount of student loan debt in the U.S.
