Boston Herald: Peace prevails in Boston as rally plays out20 August 2017 | 10:20 | FOCUS News Agency
The highly anticipated rally, which drew just a few dozen conservative demonstrators, was scheduled to be held from noon to 2 p.m. but ended an hour early when small groups of rally participants were escorted away from the Parkman Bandstand by some of the 500 police officers who were keeping the peace.
The sparsely populated bandstand and empty no man’s land created by police to keep the two sides apart were starkly contrasted by the tens of thousands of counter¬protesters who flooded into downtown Boston, many waving signs with slogans such as “Love Conquers Hate,” “Stop Embarrassing Your Friends and Family,” and “USA 1 Nazis 0,” among other more profane placards.
