The previous day an estimated 10,000 union members, students, veterans, families, women and men of all ages had marched from the Boston Common to Dewey Square, and then to the North Washington Bridge, to demand economic justice. Police stopped these protesters at the bridge, and one person was arrested. Later the demonstrators joined Occupy Boston, which expanded to fill the second site.

Mauro eventually got deferred action on his deportation and was told his brother had to turn himself in to be considered for deferred action. Read More…
