Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members from around the world will participate in a fast for fossil fuel divestment from October 20-24th, 2014. We approach fasting as an honored tactic to to call attention to the urgent need for divestment in light of the current injustices caused by climate change.
We ask the Harvard community and supporters from around the world to fast with us for up to 3 days throughout the week. We will have a core group that will fast for 3 days (72 hours representing the 72% of Harvard students who support fossil fuel divestment), and many will fast for 1 or 2. We do not encourage or endorse fasting for longer for 5 days—health is our first priority.
You can join from anywhere in the world or come hang out with us on campus.
