She Occupied Her Graduation

In this clip from "DEFAULT: The Student Loan Documentary,", Ivonne Quiroz is shown occupying her graduation at San Francisco State University, wearing a ball and chain around her ankle to signify the student debt that will follow her throughout most of her life. "I owe about $21,000, and I believe education is a right," she says.

You can view the full documentary at the link above, for a fee of $3.99...they've got to pay those federal loans somehow.
