The Boston Anti-Racist Coalition excited to hear that the April 11th event scheduled to be at the South Boston VFW has officially been canceled. However, the battle continues against racism. We are not naive and we know that they will still have their event, albeit slightly hindered by our efforts. We are continuing to get information and leads as to where they may be on April 11th.
A call to the VFW by Turn It Down found that the event had already been canceled quickly and decisively. A management source at the South Boston VFW emphatically explained that the venue had no idea as to the nature of the event they were scheduled to host: “We want no part of that. It has no place here, and it ain’t welcome. We shut it down as soon as we knew.”
