They were counting for an hour...!

Nick Ramos, a student at the University of Colorado, wanted to send a message towards the Universities for the rise in the tuition fees. He paid his $14.000 fee by giving one dollar bills. To collect all of these bills, the twenty year old student had to go and collect them from two banks. He then put them into bags and took them to the University. The University staff did not see the funny side to this "protest" since they were counting the money for an hour. 

The message Nick Ramos wanted to point out was the fact that it is currently too expensive for someone to  study and wanted to remind the leaders of the Universities that many students will have to abandon the University due to this enormous and astronomical rise in fees. 

Unfortunately this is the case in many countries now, making it impossible for millions of people to continue their studies, which inevitably means that they will have to abandon their dreams of a better and secure life, since good jobs will only go to those who can afford a good high education. The richer are getting richer and the poorer are getting poorer..!
