Central Square die-in. Photo by Central Square.

Protesters started at Tufts University, blocked up Davis Square, where the T shut down the subway station, then moved down Mass. Ave. to Porter and onto Harvard, where a large contingent of T cops blocked the portal into the busway and then had the gates to the main pedestrian entrance to the station locked. As protesters moved down JFK Street, the entrance was re-opened.

Around 6:25 p.m., the vanguard of protesters was approaching Central Square.
