Bostonians to stand in solidarity with Charlottesville and fight the ultra right
In the wake of the violent reactionary protests in Charlottesville that caused the death of one person and the injury of several others, some right-wing extremists thought it would be clever to bring their goose-stepping act back to Boston this weekend—after a lame engagement in May. Readers interested in protesting their presence in the Hub have a choice of two major counterdemonstrations that we’re listing here in the public interest. Folks should just remember that protests aren’t flea markets, so the details below may change at a moment’s notice.
