About 40 people gathered in Copley Square for an informal march in solidarity with student protests. Carrying banners and wearing red squares, the march went first to Copley Place, home of the Canadian consulate. A speech was read in the small park behind the building, after which protesters headed for Park Plaza and the consulate of Mexico.

The red squares are the symbol of the most militant student protesters in Quebec, where university students have been on strike for nearly four months against tuition increases and other austerity measures,. Massive protest marches occur every night. The Quebec provincial government recently passed a law prohibiting nearly any kind of mass protest.

In Mexico students have been protesting press coverage biased in favor of the leading presidential candidate.

The march in Boston proceeded uneventfully, with almost no police interference in spite of spending most of its time in the street.
