48 arrested at Yale protest over fossil fuel investment­s:

-

Yale University police arrested 48 people who were protesting the Ivy League school’s investment­s in fossil fuel companies and its Puerto Rico debt holdings. The arrests came during a sit-in demonstrat­ion Friday inside Yale’s investment office as more than 300 students and community members rallied outside the building. Protesters demanded that Yale divest itself of endowment funds from fossil fuel companies because of concerns about climate change. They also said they wanted Yale to cancel its holdings in a fund that holds some of Puerto Rico’s huge debt while the island struggles to recover from hurricane damage.
