One big debtor's union: Toward mass debt resistance.

Debt Collective organizer Thomas Gokey examines the social cost of the US's $1.7 trillion dollar student loan debt, and explains how individual working class people are coming together to fight for large scale debt forgiviness and against a bankrupt system that profits off poor people paying for things that should be free.

The Debt Collective authored the book Can't Pay, Won't Pay: The Case for Economic Disobedience and Debt Abolition from Haymarket Books.
