    Days after the deaths of five Dallas, Texas, police officers and the controversial shootings of two black men, hundreds took to the streets of Boston calling for an end to police brutality. 

    Protesters started outside Boston Police headquarters and made their way to Roxbury and the South End, marching for hours Wednesday. 

    "Mass Action Against Police Brutality" organized the rally.

    Demonstrators said they want police to be held accountable. 

    Police also kept close watch of the rally. They thank all of the protesters for peaceful participation in the march. 

    No injuries and no arrests were reported.
