Harvard reaches agreement with protesters to dismantle camp on campus

The coalition that orchestrated the three-week camp on the Harvard University campus, Harvard Out of Occupied Palestine (HOOP), announced the end of the student occupation this Tuesday (14).

According to the group, the university administration has agreed to lift all suspensions related to pro-Palestinian protests on campus. In the agreement, transparency meetings would also have been negotiated with the Harvard Management Company, which manages the university's investments.

HOOP emphasized that it does not see these meetings as a victory in the institution's requests for divestment from Israel. The coalition called the agreement an attempt at pacification.

According to the statement published by the organization, the Harvard administration also agreed to negotiate the creation of a Center for Palestinian Studies at the university.

In an email sent to the academic community and obtained by The New York Times, Harvard President Dr. Alan M. Garber stated that the camp area was being evacuated and said he would “seek a meeting among the participants of the camp and the chair of the corporate committee on shareholder responsibility and other university leaders for a discussion of student issues related to the endowment.”
