Here are the street closures and parking restrictions for Saturday’s demonstrations

City of Boston

A few streets will be closed on a rolling basis Saturday morning in Boston and a number of no-parking zones will be in effect throughout the day as a controversial “free speech” rally and related counter-protests take place in the city.

It appears a majority of the restrictions will be in place to accommodate the “Fight Supremacy!” counter-protest, which includes a march from the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center in Roxbury to the Boston Common.
