Demand the Future

This summer, OWS-affiliated student groups are planning a national convergence in, interestingly, Columbus, Ohio, the political epicenter of a very important swing state in the November election. It's happening August 10 to 14.

From the website:

"America needs a youth movement. As our generation comes of age, our country is coming apart. Our opportunities are drying up and our democracy is increasingly controlled by a tiny few. At this moment, we have a choice: we can save our future or sit by as it's squandered by those in power. From Wisconsin to Keystone XL, from Occupiers to DREAMers, we have already started to stand up. Like our friends in Chile, Mexico and Canada before us, students across the US are fighting for change. This summer, we will converge in Columbus, Ohio to plan the next stage of the movement."
