Canton, NY, Oct 06, 2011 — Hundreds of university students throughout New York are walking out of classes, in a show of solidarity with the Wall Street protests. About sixty students gathered at the quad of St. Lawrence University in Canton. They wrote messages on pieces of white paper, and strung them together between the trees. One read, "We are the future, when is my voice going to be heard."
Protestors on Wall Street seem to have a variety of reasons for being there, mostly to do with economic justice. St. Lawrence is a relatively expensive, private college. But when Julie Grant attended the protest there, she found the students also have many concerns for the future. She spoke with organizers Emily Penna and Jordan Pescrillo for today's Heard Up North.
