Those watching the Harvard/Yale game Saturday got a bit of an unexpected halftime show when hundreds of alleged students rushed the field with giant banners calling the universities complicit in “climate injustice.” Others just sat and disrupted the game.

At halftime of Harvard-Yale a sit in protesting climate issues has broken out on the field, at least delaying the second half and the way the protest is growing I would be shocked if the game continues. pic.twitter.com/2BWCU2fLuI

As a Canadian, I was always told that Yale and Harvard were prestigious schools.
Have we been lied to up here?

So if someone runs on the field they get tackled and arrested but some snowflakes go out there and they can have a pow wow. Unbelievable.

Just keep playing the game though. *Roughing the protester* 15-yard penalty. Automatic 1st down.

Smh what makes them think ruining a football game will make anyone interested in whatever they are protesting. 🤧

Kind of like blocking traffic … that’s a great way to win hearts and minds.
They don’t actually care about change they just want attention that’s why they do ridiculous things. If they truely cared they would protest in a way people would actually listen to them and respect them

I hope those protesters don't catch any toxic masculinity from being so close to the players.

Years ago the players would have cleared them out themselves.

WV State Police started using pepper spray canisters on us, after WVU beat Virginia Tech in 2003. It worked. Just saying.
