Students, Superheroes Confront Military and CIA at Harvard University
10 Oct 2006
Dozens of students and community members confronted representatives of the U.S. Army, Marines, Air Force, and Central Intelligence Agency on Harvard's campus in Allston last Friday.

The action was a joint effort by a coalition of Harvard students in protest of the war in Iraq, the poverty draft, and discrimination in the military, but also in protest of Harvard's corporatization of education and its expansion into Allston.

The activists engaged in nonviolent direct action including a die-in, a queer kiss-in, a picket line, and street theater featuring insurgent superheroes (see Captain America and Wonderwoman).

As a result, the military and CIA recruiters needed special protection throughout their stay on campus. "Special police" were called in, protesters were videotaped and spied on, and several students have been told they will face disciplinary action for exercising their freedom of speech.
