Boston: Tens of thousands protest against racism

Saturday, August 19th, 2017 | World News

In the US city of Boston on Saturday several thousands of demonstrators put in a rally of white nationalists in the way. The anti-racist rally, according to local media, 15,000 to 30,000 people – far less the assembly of right groups, which apparently attracted only a few dozen participants.

Larger violent clashes such as a week earlier in Charlottesville in the state of Virginia were left out in Boston. The police reported isolated speeches with demonstrators, demonstrators had thrown policemen with bottles and stones. About 20 people were arrested.

Some anti-racist demonstrators accused the police indignantly of protecting "Nazis," as an AFP photographer reported. The counter-demonstrators boosted the right wing on their way to the demonstration. In talks, they turned against "fascists" and the racist Ku Klux Klan. It was seen in aerial photographs that the counter-demonstrators filled one of the main streets of Boston across several blocks of houses.

US President Donald Trump praised the use of the police. "Looks like there are many anti-police agitators in Boston," the President wrote on Twitter. "The police are hard and skilful." In the past week, Trump had launched a storm of indignation because he did not want to distract himself clearly from the right-wing demonstrators in Charlottesville.

To the Nationalist rally in Boston had called several groups from the right margin. Officially, they claimed to want to demonstrate freedom of expression. The city administration, for the sake of precaution, had forbidden the wearing of any weapons in the area of ​​the rallies. It set up cement barriers and garbage trucks to prevent attacks on cars – like the example of Charlottesville.
