15 Democratic delegates staged a protest yesterday against the designated protest pens, which has been likened to an internment camp and Guantanamo
Bay. One delegate said the so-called "free speech zone", which is surrounded by chainlink fence and razorwire, is QUOTE "no way to encourage
democracy." The protest pen has been largely abandoned by demonstrators who have staged an unofficial boycott of the site.
This is awesome read this
Yesterday hundreds of demonstrators gathered in Roxbury to protest a plan to build a Level 4 bioweapons research lab in a low-income residential area.
Opponents of the project say the government has never built a Level 4 lab in an urban area before. Meanwhile the Boston-based Black Tea Society has
called for a day of action today and a series of decentralized direct action protests.
------ It's about time protesters start doing something constructive... -----
