Tuition Is Too Damn High

by credstone

An student who wishes to remain anonymous installed a toilet reading "insert tuition here" in the main gallery.

Someone should level with American college students. Don't go to college if you can't afford it! We have crossed the college tuition increase tipping point. Student loan debt slavery is crippling this young generation.

Public officials have mistakenly thought that shutting down encampments will discourage protestors. They are wrong. Our encampments are a physical manifestation of our desire and our determination to unite despite our differences. We must fight to keep our encampments but tearing them down will not tear us down.

Many are finally waking up to find they are surrounded by an corrupted world and a polluted political oligarchy. We were busy getting an education, working and shopping as our government was hijacked. Our governments were overthrown while we fretted about how we were going to pay our bills and obtain an untenable dream that we never really needed in the first place. The Occupy movement has been born out of fear, anger and desperation but it will thrive and bear fruit through fairness, justice and hope.

The following is the Obama 2012 form letter and a link to my 2012 fundraising page. I am not happy with the administration and when they asked me, one of the first and main state organizers for 2008 I said no but decided to create a fundraising page anyway. When I was asked once again to serve on the State of Utah Steering Committee I said no. The following is the letter I am sending to my friends to join me. See the link to my Climate2012page for more details.

Salt Lake City, Utah

Immediately after being sentenced to two years in federal prison and $10,000 in fines Tim DeChristopher was put in heavy leg chains and escorted out of the Utah Federal Courthouse for a non-violent act of civil disobedience.

Going to Jail for Mother's Day

by credstone

For Mother’s Day I decided to give my kids a gift and go to jail for them. I have two beautiful boys who have brought me endless amounts of joy, and sometimes sorrow. They are not awake yet. When they do wake up I expect the usual card and a small handmade gift. I love mothers day and I have kept every little trinket they have glued, sewn, painted and decoupaged.

The longer our elected officials fail to fix the immigration system and the more they work to oppress immigrants the more young people are driven to take action to protect their rights and the rights of their families. Their inaction and delays create more organizers by the day and by the hour.
