Boston, MA

Speaking out against hate and bigotry, more than 40,000 people gathered on Boston Commons Saturday to rally against White Supremacy, in the wake of a similar rally that turned violent in Charlottesville, Virginia just over a week ago. 

The violence in Charlottesville set off a backlash against the thinly veiled attempts and tacit support of the Trump Administration to lend legitimacy to the renewed rise of White Supremacy. 

Saturday’s rally in Boston was couched as a free speech rally and its organizers balked at comparisons to the Charlottesville rally. However, the Boston event featured a keynote speech by a right-wing nationalist who was caught on video beating counter-protesters with a wooden pole at an event in Berkeley. 

Although several protesters were arrested during Saturday’s event, there were no reports of widespread violence.
