Re: Anyone Else Here On Curfew?

Boston had a recommended covid curfew of 9pm in effect until May 18; I can't see where it's extended or one issued for protesters. Very large crowd of protesters on the common today. We are gathering in my city Thursday evening on the town common and I'm planning to join.
