In solidarity with Occupy UMass

Members of Occupy Harvard visited Occupy Umass Boston, the only public college occupation in the area. Having sent a call out to other occupies to bolster support against a possible eviction, OUMB was expecting a solidarity rally at 8pm. With great support from faculty and callers from around the world to voice their opinion to their chancellor, the occupiers felt that their camp was safe for the night and opted to host a speak out. With a diverse crowd of people including former and current students, members of other occupations and community members, the attendees shared their opinion on the state of education, the occupy movement and the relevancy of college occupations. There was a strong feeling of solidarity, speakers explicitly stating their gratefulness for the support that they feel from fellow occupiers and encouraging the continuation of the movement.  Looking forward to the national March 1st day of action!
