Harvard Occupiers heckle Goldman Sachs recruiting event

by College Fix Staff on November 29, 2011

Yale Occupiers heckled Morgan Stanley information session attendees, and now, Harvard Occupiers heckled a Goldman Sachs recruiting event. They did not get a chance to interrupt the session, however, when they were denied entrance into the event:

When the group reached the (Office of Career Services offices, ralliers stood outside the building for a few minutes, yelling, “Goldman Sachs, you can’t hide. We can see your greedy side.”

When two protesters attempted to enter the building using their Harvard IDs, they were denied entrance by HUPD officers and OCS officials stationed outside. [...]

“What [OCS Director Robin E. Mount] told me was that she didn’t want me to disrupt the event,” Korn said. “She said no, you’re not wearing the right clothes, you don’t have a resume with you. And I said, ‘If I come back wearing the right clothes, with a resume with me, will you let me in?’ And she said no and turned [her head away from me].”

“I think if I had gone wearing a suit and looking like the one percent they would have let me in,” she added, referencing the Occupy movement’s popular “one percent” mantra.

As ralliers began to dissipate, Mount told the remaining protesters that she respected the movement and the protesters’ right to free speech but she also respected “the other students’ right to look for a job if they want it.”
