BOSTON (WHDH) – Sky7 is over a large protest that has caused some traffic problems in Boston’s Financial District.
Dozens of protesters with the group the Poor People’s Campaign have blocked Congress Street.
The group is calling for union and immigrant rights, income equality, and better conditions for workers and students.
One of the group’s organizers told 7News the group does not plan to leave until “someone or several people are arrested.”
The group said it is a protest against the greed of corporate America.
At one point during their protest, a counter-protester entered the crowd and entered into a shouting match before police broke up the confrontation. No physical violence occurred.
There have not yet been any arrests.
This is a developing story; stay with 7News on air and on WHDH.com for the latest.
