The march started at 1pm in front of the Old State House, the site of the Boston Massacre on March 5, 1770; this is where Crispus Attucks , a black man, was killed by English soldiers- he was the first death in the American Revolution. The march went in a roundabout circuit from there to the Mass. State House. Along the march route there were 2 symbolic die-ins, to symbolize those killed by the police. Police were co-operative and I didnt see any arrests.

This was one of many 4 mile marches across the country-4 miles to symbolize the 4 1/2 hours Michael Brown laid in the street in Ferguson, after a racist cop killed him.

Here are links to a video and photos I took:
