I have always been aghast that young people haven't shown more civil disobedience in the last twenty years. It is like their parents, the baby boomers of the 60's passed on none of their idealism. Strange. But now, at least in the UK, it appears the students there have finally had enough as the government tries to raise tuition rates.
The same thing should happen here in the US. If, for instance, UNM hikes its tuition then the students should take over the University Admin offices and the capitol building in Santa Fe and demand that higher education be made affordable again. In the 60's and 70's that would have happened. Now maybe it can again.
I hope the young folks get madder than hell.
