A small group of jammers took the corporate American flag donated by Adbusters to Boston's esplanade on the 4th.
A small group of Jammers gathered outside the esplanade on the 4th of July with the corporate flag. The group proceeded into the Esplanade with the flag and handed out flyers with information on how huge corporations are damaging our world, our country, and our communities. The Esplanade was filled with people (approx 500,000) as it is on every 4th as people gather to watch the Boston pops and firworks in the evening.

Marching with the flag drew many comments and double takes. Some witnesses just shook there heads while others spoke up and mentioned that they agreed completely with our message. Many people came up to us to ask about the flag and for more information.

We also met a few people who did not seem so thrilled by our presence. One man even commented, "what would our country be without corporations?!"

His rhetorical question was not lost on us as we all started imagining the possibilities.
