Harvard Yard: Restricted Speech Zone

Missing: one geodesic dome

Thank you to all those in the Harvard community and beyond who have expressed to us concern and dismay about the loss of the centerpiece of our physical encampment Friday night.

We do not believe that the seizure of our dome by Harvard administration was justified. We continue to call for Harvard to make good on its commitment to support free speech on campus.

To that end, the Tiny Tent Taskforce contingent of the newly formed OH Crafts Working Group convened on Saturday to decorate the site of our encampment.

Tiny tiny tents!

Our intention is to leave visual and symbolic evidence of our objection to the removal of our dome so that those who pass through the Yard in the coming days can better appreciate what transpired. Our physical encampment of Harvard Yard was the longest in Harvard’s history, and we intend to continue to make our presence known as we work to bring attention to important issues of social and economic justice on campus and in the larger community.

We appreciate your words of encouragement and support while we regroup and continue to plan for the next stage of our Occupation.
