Mayors taking swift action to avoid becoming the next Charlottesville
Washington Post, Aug 16 2017
City officials across the country are nervously trying to figure out how to avoid becoming the next Charlottesville as alt-right leaders and white nationalist groups vow to stage more rallies in coming days.
A group claiming it is advocating free speech has planned a rally for Saturday on the historic Boston Common, with a group advocating racial justice planning its conditions, including no sticks, weapons or backpacks.
“Make no mistake: We do not welcome any hate groups to Boston, and we reject their message,” Mayor Marty Walsh (D) said Wednesday.
