Student revolts are sweeping the world. In response to gutting public funding for Universities in California, the UK, and Italy, students are on the move, trying new methods of activism, experimenting, learning, and growing. Exciting stuff. I’ve been tracking it on StudentActivism.net, and you really should check it out. It’s a blog written by the only professor of student movements in America.

So in the UK the government has proposed cutting funding for Universities by 80% and raising tuition by ~$20,000 per person.

The new face of student revolt? An occupation dance-off:
