Climate Activists at Harvard Protest in Front of President’s Home and Office

Climate Activists at Harvard Protest in Front of President’s Home and Office

“When we’re running out of time to make a difference, it’s essential that students all around the country and world speak up”

This story includes quotes from the activists which make it clear that they don’t believe being a student is their first priority. So why are they at Harvard?

The College Fix reports:

Harvard climate activists protest ‘destruction of planet’ in front of president’s house

Several members of the group Divest Harvard “pass[ed] around a platter of pancakes” in front Harvard President Lawrence Bacow’s residence Thursday morning while protesting the university’s continued investment in fossil fuels.

After a couple of hours “singing songs, reading poems, and chanting,” the activists moved on to Bacow’s office, according to The Crimson.

Divest Harvard member Georgia Bowder-Newton said she was excited at the “absurdity” and “eccentricity” of the event. She added it was “just really exciting” to eat pancakes outside of the president’s house while demonstrating against the university’s participation in the destruction of the planet.

Freshman Connor Chung said, “When we’re running out of time to make a difference, it’s essential that students all around the country and world speak up to say, ‘Hey, this is something that really matters to us.’”

But DH’s Ilana Cohen upped the ante, saying that climate change activism is hard work: “Thinking about climate change a lot of the time can be depressing. Ecological grief is a very, very real concept.”

We can’t just go about our lives going to class every single day. We can’t just be university presidents living in our very nice houses and going straight into our offices and Mass. Hall. We all have to take responsibility as active participants in building a more just and stable society.

“Climate change activism is hard word.” How absurd!

People wanting to make real differences would be studying science in order to solve real problems and make real differences.

Aren’t the administrators (grown ups) tired yet of the little whiners they’ve allowed onto campuses?
I know I am!!!!!

Wait until these “children” graduate and become “lawyers”…..then they will discover what “hard work” is!
These are all spoiled brats just having a good time.They are living off their parents nickel right now.

The Climate Crisis mandates and justifies any and all acts; we are in it for the planet!
