Counter-protest

Yesterday, I wrote about my donation pledge, to raise funds for 10 different organizations to oppose the “free speech” rally planned for Boston Common today. That, of course, is a code word for white supremacists like the ones in Charlottesville last weekend.

Today, I went to the counter-protest, along with tens of thousands of others. Fewer than 50 white supremacists showed up and they were protected from counter-protests by a barricaded neutral zone filled with cops. After about 45 minutes, they gave up and exited. A victory of sorts, but I don’t like to think about why this kind of counter-protest is still needed in this day and age.
