The International Youth and Students for Social Equality (IYSSE) conducted interviews across the United States at welcome week events at the beginning of the school year. Many students expressed anger about the two-party system and the social conditions confronting youth. Due to mounting tuition costs and the increasing cost of living, students are often forced to work one or two jobs and take out student loans in order to obtain an education.

In this video, students speak about their opposition to war and inequality and offer their thoughts on the 2016 elections.
