Laura Hanna (, on predation, surveillance and economic disobedience: Can’t Pay, Won’t Pay! From the Rolling Jubilee to the Debt Collective:

Laura will discuss the history, practice and values behind The Debt Collective, a budding organization that seeks to challenge the way basic needs are financed and accessed. The Debt Collective’s pilot project, dubbed Corinthian Collective, launched the first student debt strike. Laura will talk about the critical importance – and needs – of collective action in the fight against asymmetrical creditor-debtor relations.
