Harvard and Yale students disrupt football game for fossil fuel protest

Source: Guardian

Students and alumni from Harvard and Yale disrupted the annual football game between the two elite universities on Saturday, occupying the field in New Haven, Connecticut, at half-time and demanding the colleges divest from fossil fuels.

A group of more than 100 protesters planned to stall the high-profile game for as long as possible, probably resulting in their arrests.

. . . "They believe that they can engage with these companies and get them to change their fundamentally extractive business models, which we think comes from a place of naivety amounting to gross negligence," Nora Heaphy, an undergraduate at Yale, said.

"It's absurd to make those kinds of claims. So since then our campaign has moved away from administrative engagement, recognizing that it is often a stalling tactic."

"You know, the American people have the transcript of the President's call and . . ."

No, Vice President Pence, the American people do not have the transcript of the President's call. You have misspoken.

Pence this morning answering a question about his involvement in the extortion scandal:


"You know, the American people have the transcript of the President's call and . . ."

"And for people who have questions, again, they can look at the transcript."


Reporters have to ask Pence when Trump will release the transcript. They have to ask Trump when he will release the transcript. They have to ask the gutless defenders in Congress and elsewhere when will Trump release the transcript. Then when they play dumb about 'already released', say No, we mean the one hidden away, when will you release the full transcript so "the American people have the transcript"?

It's not just semantics or technicalities, it's cover-up and normalizing lies and deceit.

Of course, there is much more to the extortion scandal, a great deal more evidence from many sources of a wide conspiracy of pressure and bribery. But don't let them get away with perpetuating false claims about facts to manipulate public opinion, dammit!
