Students around the country are expanding the Occupy movement by setting up encampments on their campuses. Not surprisingly, some university administrations have responded with repressive maneuvers, including shutting off free access to campuses (Harvard) and using police to brutalize protesters (UC Berkeley).

Occupiers are protesting the the prohibitive tuition as well as anti-worker activities of school administrations. Thus, Harvard students are supporting wage demands of the univesity’s janitorial staff.
This appears to be the beginning of a new student movement. It appears that activism on campuses will only grow as administrators freak out and try and repress the movements while raising tuition even higher to fund their bloated administrative budgets.
