BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A small group of demonstrators made their way through Boston Wednesday night to mark the Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Joe Biden.
The rally started with speeches on the Boston Common at the Parkland Bandstand, away from the barricade State House.
One demonstrator, Nicki, was there to celebrate. “I’m here because for the first time I’m proud to be a Black American,” she said.
Nicki was wearing an American flag mask she made herself that had the words ‘Black Lives Matter’ on it. She said she feels recognized for the first time because Kamala Harris was sworn in as the first Black woman and first Asian American woman vice president.
Many of the demonstrators said they were not happy with either former President Donald Trump or President Biden. And some held anti-fascism signs.
As the night progressed, demonstrators marched on Charles Street. Boston Police stepped in when a driver in an SUV appeared to get frustrated and tap some of the demonstrators who were in the road.
