Rally against police brutality held in Roxbury

ROXBURY, Mass. (WHDH) — Crowds gathered near Boston Police headquarters Wednesday for a rally that organizers said is a protest of police brutality.

The rally was organized by the group Mass Action Against Police Brutality. The rally began at Boston Police headquarters, then marched down to Jim Rice Park and finished at Dudley Commons. The group said the rally is a “unity march against police terror” and has nothing to do with the killings of five police officers in Dallas.

Mass Action Against Police Brutality organizers said they want to see changes made, including the removal of racist police officers and elected officials and more transparency within police departments.
