OccupyBoston protesters link arms around the tents in preparation for a planned police action at their second encampment at Rose F. Kennedy Greenway a block from Dewey Square, in downtown Boston, Massachusetts, USA. The police and city officials warned protesters that they would be forceably removed from the site by midnight. At about 1:30am police moved into the park, arrested approximately 100 protesters, and cleared the park of all tents and other protest materials. The protesters are part of OccupyBoston, which is part of the OccupyWallStreet movement, expressing discontent with the socioeconomic situation of the 99% of the US population who are not wealthy. Protestors have been camping in Dewey Square since Sept. 30, 2011. Gradually, larger organizations, including major labor unions, have expressed their support for the OccupyBoston effort.
I've just uploaded to my portfolio site a selection of images from my coverage of OccupyBoston
, a protest that has been going on in downtown Boston since late September 2011. An offshoot of the Occupy Wall Street movement, protesters in Boston have camped in Dewey Square and hosted a number of marches and educational events at their encampment and throughout Boston. See the images here
