Protesters take over Harvard Yard
After brief lockout, students pitch tents, vow a lengthy stay
Harvard University last night locked the gates to its storied yard to prevent protesters, including students, from erecting tents as part of the national Occupy movement. University officials said at 9:20 p.m. they planned to allow students with identification cards back into the yard soon, but were concerned about a possible uprising from protesters not affiliated with Harvard. Some had appeared at a rally at Harvard Law School earlier in the evening.
