No cuts! No fees! Education should be free!

Malcolm Chu explains why we must fight against home foreclosures and corporate greed.

On Tuesday students and faculty members filled the large ballroom at the Student Union to celebrate the ‘Fight Back USA’ teach-in where they attempted to raise awareness about austerity, debt and corporate greed.

All types of school organizations lined up the walls of the ballroom – all wanting to explain to you their fight against large corporations and why you should join them.

Malcom Chu, an alumnus of UMass-Amherst and now a community organizer in Springfield working with the No One Leaves Campaign, said that over the past 30 years wealth has been isolated to the top one percent of the population. “We are in one of the largest crises in U.S. history,” said Chu.

“Banks are putting profit in front of people!” he said as he mentioned under the same breath that he was running out of time. The crowd erupted in cheers as he walked off the stage.
