Thousands of anti-fascist and Black Lives Matter protesters converged on a park in Boston, Massachusetts, on August 19, to confront a so-called ‘free speech’ rally by right-wing organizers in the wake of the recent rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Footage shot from behind the police lines shows counter protesters chanting “Black Lives Matter” at the ‘free speech’ rally occupying a pavilion at the center of the park. Local media reported as many as 10,000 people marched from Roxbury to Boston Common where the much smaller ‘free speech’ rally gathered. Counter protesters formed a huge circle around the pavilion chanting and heckling. Credit: Instagram/RAPPING PRINCE via Storyful
