Here are some of the best posters from Boston’s ‘free speech rally’ counter-protest
Signed, sealed, and peacefully delivered
In the wake of the recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia, many "free speech" rallies were organized, including one right here in Boston. In response to this planned rally, tens of thousands of protesters on Saturday marched peacefully along the Boston Common carrying handmade signs, waving a rainbow flag, and silently protesting against hatred.
The Tab gathered the best posters from Saturday's counter-protest, and they did not disappoint. The protesters were quiet, but the messages spoke for themselves.

The First Amendment = the most important amendment
Quality poster, even better quality message
The hashtag says 'we need our manpower'
Turning hate into hope for the future
The poster that shows everyone is welcome here
An important comparison equation
And finally, in true Lord of the Flies fashion
