The following is from Sam Wohns of Harvard University.
In addition to being a prime beneficiary of the multiple acts of environment destruction on the Charles River, Harvard is apparently destroying the environment in Argentina.
Harvard owns two industrial timber plantations in northern Argentina that are degrading the Iberá Wetlands and endangering thousands of farmers.
After several communities sent a letter to President Faust, the provincial government seized thousands of hectares of their land. Last week, community leaders protested the land grab in the provincial capital.
On Tuesday, join a rally outside Massachusetts Hall to demonstrate our solidarity with the community members in Argentina.
