BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES (AUGUST 19, 2017) (NBC) – Opposition groups began to march on the streets of Boston Saturday (August 19) ahead of a “Free Speech” rally with right-wing speakers, a week after a woman was killed at a Virginia white-supremacist protest.

Streets around Boston Common were lightly trafficked early on Saturday, while some 500 police officers placed barricades to prevent vehicles from entering the park, the nation’s oldest.

Last weekend’s violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, where one woman was killed in a car rampage after bloody street battles, ratcheted up racial tensions already inflamed by white supremacist groups marching more openly in rallies across the United States.
