Demonstrators marching in Boston after Baltimore death

Demonstrators expressed solidarity with those in Baltimore protesting the death of Freddie Gray.

More than 500 demonstrators marched through Boston on Wednesday night to show solidarity with those protesting the death of a young black man who died earlier this month in police custody in Baltimore.

Protesters gathered behind Boston police headquarters in Roxbury at about 6 p.m. and were greeted by Police Superintendent-in-Chief William Gross, who waded into the crowd to shake hands with organizer Brock Satter.

“I’m a student of history,” Gross, the department’s first black police chief, told Satter. “If people didn’t protest what they felt was injustice, I wouldn’t be here in this capacity today as chief.”

The rally began soon after with a call and response chant of “Hands up!” “Don’t shoot,” and Satter laid out the demands of the group, called Mass Action Against Police Brutality.

“We have a clear message,” Satter said. “We’re gonna demand the government indict the killers of Freddie Gray. If you want peace, if you want calm, jail the killers of Freddie Gray.”
