today we had a #debate in #class. the motion was: ‘no #walls or #borders: we should get rid of #nation-states.’ one team spoke in favor of the resolution and another team opposed it. the students made excellent points and delivered their 5-minute speeches with aplomb. our judge was louise spinelli, someone who works in the #legal profession but is also an #activistinvested in issues of #diversity and #immigration. the topic was supposed to be ‘neutral.’ the team supporting the motion won. here i am with louise.
