THIS THE TRUST FUND CLUB?” shouted an #OccupyBoston protester in a black
hoodie, bandana and backpack, through the big metal fence surrounding Harvard Yard, at
around 10PM last Wednesday night -- the first night of #OccupyHarvard. Inside, a
small circle of frustrated freshman in sweatpants and maroon baseball
caps were yelling at Occupiers to “go home.
Harvard students, staff, faculty, and community members will gather at Harvard Yard tomorrow at 7 PM for an Occupy Harvard general assembly. At 8 PM, the protesters will create an encampment on Harvard Yard, with plans to occupy the yard indefinitely.
"This is an occupation in solidarity with the global Occupy movement," read a press release from Occupy Harvard, "and with the intent of calling attention to the growing corporatization of higher education."
#OccupyBoston protesters will expand to the Boston Commons on Monday, when #StudentsOccupyBoston's Student Solidarity March plans to meet at 1:30 at the gazebo. Students will march from the Commons to Dewey Square, where they will join the Labor March taking
place at 2pm.
