I think that students should build unions. They could fight for free education, better treatment, and more of a voice on campuses and in society. In most countries, there are student unions of some sort. Like ASSÉ in Quebec. They call massive strikes , usually involving aggressive direct actions, to fight off tuition increases. Often, student unions take action in solidarity with labor struggles.

We should have student unions in the United States. Maybe then workers wouldn’t end up with thousands and thousands of dollars of student debt, effectively tethering them to the workplace for the rest of their lives.

With the number of students in the organized anarchist movement, this seems like it could be a great initial project.
