Maine anti-hate groups rally in Boston

Trump Twitter Typos 'Heel' Corrected To 'Heal' After 3 Tries- Did Hope Hicks Or Trump Tweet The Mistakes

Boston police and city officials had undertaken extensive preparations for the event, including ensuring that no one entered the area with weapons, homemade body armor, or any of the other unsafe objects used by white supremacists and some counterdemonstrators at past rallies, including in Charlottesville. A large coalition of left-wing groups such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter showed up by the thousands to protest it.

"While we maintain that every individual is entitled to their freedom of speech and defend that basic human right, we will not be offering our platform to racism or bigotry", the message noted.

About 25 conservative rally-goers gathered on Saturday at Boston Common Park, but abruptly left about 90 minutes after the event started.

Trump wrote on Twitter. "Contrary to a lot of the rumors out there, the objective of the rally is to denounce the kind of political violence that we have seen - a sort of rising tide throughout the country, and particularly most recently in Charlottesville", he pointed out.

Police confirmed that 33 people have been arrested mostly for disorderly conduct and assaults on police officers, CNN reported.

The post Counter-protesters dwarf far-right marchers at Boston rally appeared first on PBS NewsHour.

All recorded violence that did occur in Boston on Saturday came as action against the police by the left-wing protesters.

Organizers of the "Boston Free Speech Coalition Rally" expected about 100 people to attend, according to a permit they obtained for the event.

Protesters and supports are set to descend upon Boston Common Saturday afternoon.

The "free speech" rally was, by all measures, a resounding failure. "Thank you", Trump tweeted.

A growing number of U.S. political leaders have called for statues honouring the Confederacy to be taken down, with civil rights activists charging that they promote racism. One woman was killed and many others injured after a white nationalist allegedly rammed his auto into a crowd of counterprotesters.

Boston's Democratic mayor, Marty Walsh, and Massachusetts' Republican governor, Charlie Baker, both warned that extremist unrest would not be tolerated in the city famed as the cradle of American liberty.

He continued to applaud the many protesters in Boston who came out against "bigotry and hate".

The event in Boston is only one of a few protests that have popped up around the country.

The "Free Speech Rally" organizers have made it very clear that they are not tied to the Charlottesville protests that took place last weekend.
