Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Legalinsurrection.com: “Protesters from 'Divest Harvard' Occupy University Hall”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Protesters from Divest Harvard occupied University Hall Thursday afternoon as part of a rally held in celebration of the National Day of Divestment.

Protesters remained in the building for an hour. In a closing statement, Divest Harvard member Joseph Winters announced that the University faces a deadline of Earth Day — April 22 — to divest from the fossil fuel industry. Divestment organizers said they would continue to advocate daily for their cause.

“Every day until then and every single day after, if you do not listen, we’ll keep coming back to make our call: disclose, divest, or this movement will not rest!” Winters said.

Inside the administrative building, organizers handed out packets with poems about divestment and statements from Harvard faculty in support of their cause.

Protesters took turns reading statements from the packet, including a statement of support from Philosophy Department Chair Edward J. Hall and a poem entitled “Earthrise” by inaugural U.S. youth poet laureate Amanda S. C. Gorman ’20.
