Antiwar protesters on streets of Boston

By Boston.com Staff and Associated Press, 03/19/03

At least 40 antiwar protestors have been arrested in Boston today as demonstrations took place both at Government Center and in the city's financial district.

Dozens of police officers were pressed into service to maintain order and handle the arrests.

Most of the arrests occurred early this afternoon at the John F. Kennedy federal building in Government Center.

An Associated Press photographer at the scene said the arrests began when some of the protesters tried to block an entrance to the building.

Earlier today, police moved in and arrested several activists who sat down in the street and blocked traffic in the financial district, near the Boston Stock Exchange.

Television news reports indicated that Stock Exchange continued it operations.

Those taken into custody are expected to be arraigned later today in Boston Municipal Court.
