They marched through downtown shouting cries of “Schools for students, not for profits,” and “Whose school? Our school.”
“Every movement has its lulls and spikes; we’re in a lull,” said Grant Booth, a math major, writer for the Rearguard and active member of the student International Socialist Organization.

Both the Feb. 21 and March 1 events will focus around a core tenet of Occupy PSU: bail out students, not banks.
What continues to drive the Occupy PSU movement is the increasing pressure on students and escalating costs of getting a college degree. “People are very pissed off. Education is essential to having an even halfway-decent life, and yet they can be in debt their whole life pursing that,” said Rhett Mutchler, communication major and editor-in-chief at the Rearguard.
