From the streets: solidarity with Egypt in Boston

January 29, 2011

Today’s solidarity protest with Egypt was the largest, most vocal freedom march I’ve witnessed in five years in Massachusetts. Cambridge is often referred to as ‘The People’s Republic’: today the streets were roused by the anger and fearlessness of the Egyptian people.

Homemade signs and chants shut down the streets.

The march grew every hour for four hours.
