A “Straight Pride” parade in downtown Boston attracted counter-protesters — and a heavy police presence — resulting in almost three dozen arrests.A large number of counterprotesters taunted marchers Saturday and chanted “Alt right, get off our streets, no justice, no peace.” Counterprotesters outnumbered the parade participants, CNN affiliate WCVB reported.
Boston’s mayor also condemned the parade, and encouraged residents to attend block parties and other events that celebrated the city.
Thirty-four people were arrested at the parade, said Boston Police Officer James Moccia, a department spokesman. Four officers also suffered non-life threatening injuries, he said.
