Like Tweet Pin it Share Share Email

A so-called “free speech” rally in Boston on Saturday is expected to draw some of the same white supremacist groups that participated in the violent events of Charlottesville last weekend.

The national director of the Ku Klux Klan said that he expected members would attend. A large group of counter-protesters is also expected.

The rally was permitted to begin as early as 10AM at Boston Commons, a public park in the city. About 500 police officers will be on hand and officials are urging calm.

See the latest updates below.

UPDATE 12:13PM: Crowd of rally participants grows, as does the massive group of counter-protesters.
