Boston Activists Rally in Support of Baltimore Protesters

Hundreds of people gathered in Boston, rallying in support of protesters in Baltimore.

An hour-long march began at the Boston Police headquarters, ending at Dudley Square in the city's Roxbury neighborhood.

Police say no one was arrested during the peaceful protest. Organizers tell necn that the goal was to get through the evening without any arrests or violence.

Marchers took to the streets, making their voices heard loud and clear. Among them was 80-year-old Marshall Cooper Jr.

"You've got to keep the fire burning," said Cooper. "We got the power. But all we got to do is stick together."

Cooper says events like these are what will change the nation, and he's proud to be a part of it.

"There's a man that went to Boston University, right? Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King. Was he violent when he protested? No. Did he destroy anything when he protested? No," said Boston Police Superintendent in Chief William Gross. "We're better than that. Let's bring it, Boston. Protest."
