The New England Professional Chapter of SPJ is pleased to join the Massachusetts ACLU, New England First Amendment Coalition and the Massachusetts Newspaper Publishers Association in demanding that Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and Police Commissioner Bill Evans develop a plan to ensure that members of the press get access to the next “Free Speech” Rally scheduled for November 18, with a deadline of November 11.

As you may recall members of the press were barred from accessing the Parkman Bandstand in August during the so-called “Free Speech” rally. This letter is an attempt to address that from happening this time around.
