Divest Harvard Blockade Summary

Published on May 2, 2014
Beginning the morning of April 30th, Divest Harvard members — including undergrads, grad students, staff, and alumni — blockaded Mass Hall asking for an open dialogue on divestment and Harvard’s response to climate change. Yet rather than allowing space for discussion, the administration sent police to arrest students and rough them up. This video depicts events from the start of the blockade to the morning of May 1st where Harvard police moved in to arrest student Brett Roche and break up the blockade.

Since then, over 60,000 petition signatures have been gathered in support of Divest Harvard.
