Approximately 34 students, workers, activists, and people of faith gathered in front of the Hanover Theatre, holding signs ranging from the playful to the direct.

Students from Clark University asked Where Are the Arabs in Your Arabesques? And Boston area activists held a banner proclaiming Tutus Cant Cover Israels War Crimes.
