Anti-mandate protesters clash with opposing group in Boston, 2 arrested

A report stated that two people were arrested following clashes between a right-wing group protesting against the coronavirus mandates in Boston and counter-protesters.

The feuds — some of which turned physical — broke out on Boston Common during the dueling demonstrations, the Boston Globe reported.

Protesters attending the “Rise Against Tyranny” event expressed opposition to COVID-19 vaccines and other pandemic-related mandates.

In response, an opposing group launched a “Mask Up Against Hate” protest.

Despite the presence of cops, both sides fought on multiple occasions and destroyed barricades that separated them.

During clashes, there were no injuries.

But one of the “Rise Against Tyranny” protesters was sprayed with some type of irritant while feuding with a counter-protester, the report said.

It wasn’t immediately clear which group the two people arrested were affiliated with.
