ACT Up Boston Charges City With Mass Violations of Human Rights

On Nov. 5, ACT UP Boston, labor leaders, frontline harm reductionists, housing advocates, contingents of students, folks who have been houseless and people who use drugs converged on City Hall for a protest press conference and speak-out. Days earlier, city officials began waging their “sheriff’s plan,” setting up kangaroo courts, trashing tents and jailing people who had been living in a large encampment in the city’s Newmarket neighborhood.
