SUNY Prof Teaches Illegal Squatting

Posted by Dave Blount at April 11, 2011 10:21 AM

You can't say State University of New York students aren't learning any applicable skills:

An eccentric SUNY Purchase art professor held a "class" yesterday in SoHo where he instructed his hipster students on how to illegally squat in condos around the city.
Chris Robbins organized the seminar with the hopes that at least one or two of the 20 attendees will find an unoccupied apartment or condo and unsafely and illegally move in — without paying rent or taxes.

Maybe he's on to something. If Comrade Obama's jobless "recovery" lasts until after graduation, students won't need job skills, they'll need jobless skills.

Robbins explains his objectives:

"My biggest goal in this is to activate people with political beliefs who aren't actually engaging and get them to cross a boundary," said Robbins.
"Basically, we don't know what we are doing, but we have this impetus that we are going to make it happen."

So that's what they mean by "Yes We Can."

Next comes a course on Dumpster diving.
