rally in BrattleOn Saturday, August 2 about 150 of us gathered in front of the Au Bon Pain cafe in Harvard Square to protest against the racist attacks on immigrants and Muslims by both the US government and individuals, including government round-ups of people based on their ethnicity; other forms of racial, ethnic and religious profiling; violations of the civil rights of immigrants from Middle Eastern, South Asian and Muslim countries; and bigoted attacks, including arson and lynching, against Middle Easterners, South Asians, and Muslims.
