Harvard students protest against Martin Peretz

At an event on Saturday in Cambridge, Harvard University accepted a new research fund in honor of New Republic editor-in-chief and former Harvard teacher Marty Peretz.

A sizable group of students upset by Peretz’s writings over the years – most recently his assertion that Muslim life is cheap and that followers of Islam should not be protected by the First Amendment, for which he later partially apologized – was on hand to protest Peretz and the university.

Usefully, the protesters carried signs quoting Peretz’s own words as they followed him and his entourage through Harvard Yard.
