2015.04.17 – FFMIT Proud to Stand Alongside Divest Harvard
Today FFMIT joined 600 Harvard students, staff, faculty, alumni, and local community members in the powerful closing rally of #HarvardHeatWeek.
It was impossible for Harvard to ignore the logic of divestment as one of the rally’s speakers, Brandeis Professor Sabine Von Mering, had the crowd repeatedly chant at the top of our lungs what we need:
TWO, Fair carbon pricing!
THREE, Renewable energy for global climate justice!
The rally ended with a powerful march through Harvard Yard – past Massachusetts Hall and University Hall, which administrators had abandoned for the entire week for fear of engaging with Divest Harvard – and onto Massachusetts Avenue, where we reminded the local community that while Harvard may try to play down our voices, we shall not be ignored.
