Protesters March Through Downtown Boston Closing Streets, Bridges and Tunnel

It started at the Boston Common Tree Lighting, as thousands of protesters marched through Downtown Boston, closing many streets. The march was in protest of the New York City grand jury decision not to indict Eric Garner. Protesters took over the N. Washington St. / Charlestown Bridge, I-93 tunnel and Green Line during the Thursday night event. Police report six arrests and no injuries. Here are some photos and social media recounts.
