Boston Common-Jan. 17, 2015:
The weekly sat. peace vigil at Park St. in Boston held its annual Martin Luther King Day weekend vigil and speakout. We played several recordings of MLK's speeches from the 1950s-1960s over our sound system,which attracted a good sized crowd despite the 20 degree cold. Vigil members then spoke on how MLK would view the war, racism, and poverty he spoke about and protested,in context of 2015--
the US wars around the world, the racism of police violence against people of color, the wars abroad draining dollars needed to fight poverty at home. Here are links to photos and video I took:
