Die-In, Protests Expected for Boston’s New Years Eve Celebration

A group calling itself “First Night Against Police Violence” announced on its facebook page that will stage a march and a die-in during Boston’s New Years Eve celebration, known as “First Night.”

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and Police Commissioner William Evens said they respect the rights of the protestors but did not what any disruptions of the celebration.
