Where: Dewey Square • intersection of Atlantic Avenue, Summer Street, Federal Street, Purchase Street and Surface Artery • near South Station • boston

It’s past time for us to stand up and defend what is rightfully ours.

We call on a broad range of justice and freedom organizers, organizations and coalitions to come together to fight an out of control government that kills, imprisons and spies as if we are the enemy. We are the people.

The government tells us to be afraid. It spies and harasses and imprisons. It murders and tortures.
