An Amazing Week in Harvard Yard

A five-day blockade prevented administrators from entering Massachusetts Hall. Rallies, marches, panels, and vigils brought huge crowds to campus, united in a single demand: divest now.

It was an incredible week -- and it's only the beginning. We'll keep turning up the heat until Harvard chooses to stand on the right side of history. Stay tuned!
