Boston is famous for historically interesting political demonstrations. Now the Boston Scream Party is planned for the evening of November 8, 2017 in Boston Common. “Scream helplessly at the sky on the anniversary of the election,” is the name of an event which has attracted over 4,000 RSVPs on Facebook and 33,000 more people are expected to flock to Boston Common on November 8.

“This administration has attacked everything about what it means to be American,” Johanna Schulman, a local activist in Cambridge who is working on organizing the event, told Newsweek Friday. “Who wouldn’t feel helpless every day? Coming together reminds us that we are not alone, that we are part of an enormous community of activists who are motivated and angry, whose actions can make a difference.”
“While the event calls upon people to Scream Helplessly, we want to convert that sense of helplessness into resistance, into action, and maybe even into optimism,” Schulman continued. “Although it is important to acknowledge the tragedy that befell our country on November 9th, we cannot let it defeat us!”
Donald Trump, Jr. is mocking the event, not that anyone cares.
Solid plan: apparently my 3 year old is consulting for the opposition. https://t.co/3rB7zHpimW

If this catches on, it could be the next pussy hat event.
