On Sunday, January 29th, 2012, several Occupy Boston participants and supporters gathered at Copley Square in solidarity with Occupy Oakland, who after moving into a vacant building to convert into a community center to provide education, medical, and housing services, was met by police using tear gas, rubber bullets, beanbag rounds and mass arrests.
The protesters took to Newbury Street in the cold.
While being followed by the police, protesters took to Boylston Street.
They marched all the way past the Garden and Common, before heading Downtown.
Spontaneously, the group took back Dewey Square to the enjoyment of all.
At one point, a police vehicle got stuck on the sidewalk.
