Protests on college campuses are very commonplace — finding those which make sense are extremely rare
Over the past weekend, a protest was staged on the field during the halftime segment of the Harvard Yale football game. In one way you can say the protest was successful — it managed to make the Harvard-Yale football game a national story for the first time in memory. As for the protest itself let us just charitably say ‘’the results are still unclear.’’
As Nick Arama wrote on Saturday, students from both schools stormed the midfield segment of the gridiron and refused to leave, delaying the game for a duration before they were eventually cleared. Approximately two dozen were arrested. The flash-mob movement was dubbed Nobody Wins, and many news reports stated it was a protest against climate change. The truth is the message was far less easily explained.
