Boston Protest Against Muslim Ban and Anti-Immigration Orders

Another day, another protest. Today I was at the "Boston Protest Against Muslim Ban and Anti-Immigration Orders" in Copley Square. Okay, that's a mouthful. But bear with me. There was something personal about this protest. Don't get me wrong, this is not my first rodeo. I've protested when Boston stood with Palestine, I've protested with Boston Women's March For America. But this felt different. Maybe it was different because the protest was for immigrants and Muslims and I am both. I am an immigrant. I am a Muslim. But enough about me. Let's focus on my city. Boston. Time and time again you come out to show your support for people who need your help. If there are immigrants and/or Muslims in America who feel alone, I hope you will find some comfort in these images. Boston clearly stands with you.

Lots of other photographers.

You bigotry is showing.

For those who follow me know how much I like road walking. This is on Boylston Street.

There were many signs that made me emotional today, but this was more than I could bear.

Father and daughter dancing up a storm. But I really wanted to see the sign she was holding... 

Only tears. 

More road walking... this time on St. James Avenue. 

Love the diversity. This is what America looks like. 

Love and resistance.

This is the other one I had trouble containing myself. 

Wellesley College representing? 

These lovely people provided free food front of the Boston Public Library. The food smelled really good! 

They chanted, "this is what democracy looks like."

Putin & Trumpfunkel. 

I leave you with more road walking.

Thank you, Boston.
