In recent years, renewed student movements have responded to attacks on education by shutting down or occupying campuses, bringing thousands into the streets, and linking up with the broader working class movements against the privatization agenda of the 1%.

During the NATO summit in Chicago, leaders from student struggles in Chicago, the United Kingdom, Puerto Rico, and Quebec discussed their experiences and thoughts on the role and tasks of students within the movement of the 99%.

The following video was taken in Chicago at a joint event organized by Solidarity, CACHE and Teachers for Justice.
