Clashes between protestors and Antifa members broke out at Boston Common on Sunday as protestors gathered for a rally against COVID-19 vaccine and mask mandates.
The protestors and Antifa were separated by police in riot gear and fencing temporarily placed for the event, and streets surrounding Boston Common were closed down in anticipation of the event, according to NBC 10.
The two groups clashed on at least one occasion, with Antifa members appearing to overpower police as they broke through the fence line.
The rally was organized by Super Happy Fun America and the Refounding Fathers Coalition, with the event being aimed to "resist vaccine passports, face diapers, mass layoffs, and unconstitutional mandates."
The rally started at around noon, with a coinciding counterprotest featuring a brass band to overpower speakers at the rally.
Green Monster Antifa tweeted out a flyer ahead of the event, urging members to attend the event to "tell this whole load of violently misogynistic fail sons to get the hell out of town."
The flyer stated "Mask Up Against Hate, tell the capitol rioters to get out of Boston!"
Antifa members held up banners featuring the faces of Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, and other Communist leaders of the 20th century, as well as a "Death to Fascism" sign, as rally attendants yelled "let's go Brandon."
At one point during the rally, a UHaul brought by the protestors was damaged as they attempted to leave the area. Antifa members shouted "Nazis out" as the van sped away. According to NBC 10, the driver of that van was reportedly arrested.
The rally concluded at around 2pm.
