United protestors march in stampede through downtown Boston

More than 1,000 people came together on the Boston Common on Wednesday to protest the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). The Boston protestors came together to stand in solidarity with the protests occurring in North Dakota. The rally began with a prayer that was asked to not be recorded. Several of the event organizers spoke to the crowd about their experiences protesting in Standing Rock.
