Protesters from a group called Divest Harvard staged a sit-in at Massachusetts Hall, a Harvard administrative building, on Thursday night. 

The protesters are demanding that Harvard divest from fossil fuels, similar to Penn movements from Divestment at Penn and Fossil Free Penn over the last two years. 

Also similar to Penn, Harvard has refused to divest from fossil fuels, leading to the protests at Mass. Hall this week. Over a dozen protesters stayed overnight in the administrative building, which contains the offices for Harvard President Drew Faust and Provost Alan Garber. 

Faust said that she would meet with the members of the sit-in on the condition that they leave Mass. Hall, but the protesters refused. The Harvard Crimson's editorial board called the sit-in unproductive and said that it remains firmly against the movement.
