From Beacon Street to Boylston Street, from Charles Street to well past the Frog Pond, tens of thousands of people filled Boston Common today for a protest against the new administration. From Mayor Marty Walsh and Sen. Elizabeth Warren to women, men and children in the crowd, people vowed to fight for health care for all, for immigrants, for LGBT rights - and for science.
Walsh, Warren and Sen. Ed Markey vowed to fight Republicans at every turn, to protect Massachusetts immigrants, blacks, Muslims and Latinos, to stand up for Obamacare and to return Boston to its revolutionary roots and begin the fight for a kinder America, where the middle class begins to grow again as union rights are restored and the bigots are forced back into the swamp they crawled out of.
Beacon Street itself filled with people, so many so that some protesters created their own detour up Beacon Hill, and down its streets until past the knot of people at Beacon and Charles. Boston Police estimated the crowd at 175,000.
