Holding Harvard's Crimson Accountable
by Stephen Lendman
Harvard's Crimson betrays school's principles.
Harvard's motto is "VERITAS." It's shield and class rings display it. At issue is anti-Palestinian bias.
Harvard Political Review (HPR) explained. It's separate from Harvard's Crimson . HC's the nation's oldest continuously published college newspaper. It began as a fortnightly. For decades it's been a daily.
It was founded in 1873. Past editors included Franklin Roosevelt and Jack Kennedy. Undergraduates staff it. Some pursue journalism careers.
HPR calls itself "America's preeminent undergraduate journal of politics and public policy." It's "nonpartisan." It's "written and published entirely by Harvard undergraduates." Harvard's Institute of Politics provides help.
On March 10, HPR published a Harvard Palestine Solidarity Committee (PSC) letter. More on that below.
PSC supports Palestine's liberating struggle. It's non-sectarian. It believes peace depends on guaranteed Palestinian self-determination and equality.
