At this moment 12 students are occupying the Peter Cooper Union suite in New York City to protest threats to the college's tuition free education.  One of the 12 is a student reporter from the New School.  The board of Cooper Union is due to meet this Wednesday to discuss whether to charge fees for graduates but students think this is just the first step towards charging undergraduates.  WBAI's Rebecca Myles spoke to Victoria Sobel one of the 12 occupying the Peter Cooper Union suite.
