News :: DNC
DNC To Close Boston's Roads and Rails
21 May 2004
Yesterday, security plans were announced for the DNC that will shut down all the major transportation routes in greater Boston.
http://blackteasociety.org

Yesterday state, federal and local authorities released a security plan for the Democratic National Convention (DNC) that will leave nearly 40 miles of Boston roads and highways shutdown. The DNC will force closures and/or restrictions on Interstate 93, Memorial Drive, Storrow Drive, Subway Green Line, MBTA Commuter Rail, Route 1A, Route 16, Interstate 90 (Mass Pike) and a police lockdown from the North End to the Back Bay of Boston. The Mayor of Boston (Thomas Menino) is longer asking residents to get involved in the DNC, but rather telling the working class residents of Boston to 'stay away' while the rich hold their party at cities expense.

It surely leaves lots of good, proximate space for the rallys, though. That was thoughtful of the SS.
