On Wednesday, March 19, 52 people were arrested around in Boston as they performed acts of civil disobedience in opposition to the Iraq war. 10 people with 10 supporters from autonomous affinity group 39 attempted to shut down the Boston Stock Exchange in the financial district, making the connection between destructive corporate globalization policies and the Iraq war. After disrupting the Stock Exchange for 1/2 hour, they bloackaded the street in front of the Stock Exchange until they were arrested at 10am. In the afternoon, 40 protesters were arrested as they tried to block access to the JFK Federal Building with a huge crowd of supporters.
