Boston Protest Against Muslim Ban and Anti-Immigration Orders

Thousands of Bostonians packed into Copley Square on Sunday, Jan. 28, for a demonstration organized by the Center for American-Islamic Relations in MA in solidarity with Muslims and immigrants. President Trump’s temporary executive order placed an immigration ban on seven countries that are home to large Muslim populations: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen. Boston’s MBTA prepared itself by shutting down the T Station by 11:30 a.m. and asked passengers to walk towards Copley from nearby station stops instead.

Highlights from the demonstration are featured below where people share why they chose to protest and their thoughts on the current political climate in the country.
