We stand in solidarity with all those who struggle for equality. We stand in solidarity with Occupy Boston and the other occupations throughout the country. We stand in solidarity with students at other universities who suffer crushing debt burdens and insufficient resources. We stand in solidarity with the students who occupied Massachusetts Hall one decade ago. We stand in solidarity with working people at Harvard and across the world.
