video/photos-Boston First Night 2015 Against War And Police Violence
01 Jan 2015
Boston, Mass.-Dec. 31, 2014

New Years Eve 2015: Boston First Night Against The Wars took place in Copley Sq. in Boston in the midst of New Years Eve festivities. There was a standout between 12 noon and 6pm with anti-war banners and signs.

About 4:30 Black Lives Matter-Anti-Police Violence protesters joined the anti-war standout, with a march, speakout, and "die-in" to symbolize all the people of color killed by the police; during the die-in, the names of those killed by the police were read aloud.

The Boston police who were there didn't interfere with the die-in, which lasted about 20 minutes. It was powerful street theater.I believe protesters were going to join the official First Night parade passing by on Boylston St. but I didn't stay for the march. A lot of mainstream media were there, and I saw coverage on channel 5, 11pm news.

Here are links to video and photos that I took--
