Fossil Fuel Protesters Storm Field at Harvard-Yale Game in New Haven

The crowd of students and alumni of @DivestHarvard and @FossilFreeYale amassed at the 50-yard line while John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Roads" was playing over loudspeakers. A banner held by the students read "Nobody wins. Yale & Harvard are complicit in climate injustice." The game resumed after police arrived and started arresting the protesters.

This made worldwide news. See the videos found on the News.com.au and a Twitter video on Vox. For another take on the protest, see the Wall Street Journal video
