Local activists celebrate victory

Last Saturday morning, activists gathered in Copley Square to demonstrate for environmental justice, housing protection and worker protections. But as word of the Joe Biden/Kamala Harris victory spread, the march took on a jubilant tone.

By the time the marchers reached Boston’s financial district, spontaneous celebrations were erupting across Boston. Throughout downtown and across the city, car horns blared and groups of people gathered in parks and squares, some waving American flags to celebrate the defeat of one of the most divisive political figures in recent U.S. history.

On Centre Street in Jamaica Plain, the bells of the First Church tolled continuously as a parade of cars drove through the business district while honking their horns. Cars paraded on Dorchester Avenue, through the South End and in other Boston neighborhoods. On Boylston Street by the Public Garden, a throng of revelers in the hundreds gathered spontaneously.
