Michigan student’s Tar Sands Action arrest makes headlines
[vimeo]http://vimeo.com/29237218[/vimeo]A few weeks ago, Central Michigan University student Chloe Gelichman submitted a letter to the editor about her recent arrest at the Tar Sands Action in DC to her schools student run newspaper. Instead of publishing her LTE, they contacted her for an interview and ended up writing a full length feature story that landed on the front page of the paper!
“I’m not trying to take away jobs or ruin our economy,” Gleichman said. “I’m fighting for everybody, even the people who are the oil company lobbyists. They need to breathe clean air just like the rest of us.”
