I'll let the students speak for themselves when they get back, but several of them told me that this was a life-changing experience.
I just called them in their van, about an hour out of Chicago and they were watching the live stream of today's front-line protest action against the pipeline on their IPhones. As state police began to move in a make arrests, I heard some say they wanted to turn around an go back. Not possible, of course.
Thanks again to everyone who supported the trip. I'll notify you when there's a public debriefing activity organized. In the mean time, students are planing articles and use of different types of media to tell their story.
