A small free speech rally in Boston, Massachusetts on Saturday was forced to disband after thousands of left-wing activists held an enormous counter-protest.
Roughly 300 free-speech activists took part in the event, while approximately over 30,000 counter-protesters took to the streets in a protest organized by groups such as Black Lives Matter and Boston’s ANSWER Coalition. Counter-Protestors cited the recent Charlottesville protests as their motivators behind showing on mass.
The rally was organized by a group known as the Boston Free Speech Coalition and invited
“libertarians, conservatives, traditionalists, classical liberals, Trump supporters or anyone else who enjoys their right to free speech.”
