    Five students talk about their causes, camping and being told to “Get a job!” (And isn’t that the problem?)

    CARLOS PAZMINO, 21: sophomore, political science, City College of New York

    ACTIVISM RESUME: At John Jay College, where I was a visiting student for the semester, there was this group called John Jay Rising that started just when the Occupy movement was getting media attention. They managed to have a walkout for the entire school. I became an organizer. I’m trying to start something similar at City College. The way John Jay was built was awesome. They took a large commuter school and they made themselves into a community. It’s a leaderless group. We didn’t want to make it about one person. It’s about everybody.
    HOPING TO ACCOMPLISH: The chancellor at CUNY makes more than the president — and President Obama makes $450,000. He is the 1 percent. He got a pay raise last year, and our tuition goes up by $300 a year. Some students want free tuition. I don’t think that will happen.
    BEST/WORST MOMENT: There were two amazing protests, on Nov. 21 and Nov. 28. Being brutalized by the police — that encompassed the greatest and worst moments of the movement for me. There were no broken bones during the protests, but one individual went to the hospital. A CUNY police officer took out a baton and hit her in the jugular. Another student was dragged across the floor.
    WHY I DO IT: I’m from Ecuador. I came to the U.S. when I was 9. I lived in Scarsdale for a bit; my mom remarried someone who was a med student. I’m one of the rare 1 percent who goes to CUNY. But I’ve been working since I was 16. I don’t think my role is: “I’m part of the elite and I will lead.” I really believe education is a human right. I could have gone to any school I wanted to, and I decided to stay at CUNY. CUNY has this vibrancy and this intellectual drive.
