Alternative Facts?

...nah, not really

I was reading an interesting article in the Cambridge Chronicle about the old Harvard Square Theater. 

The building is located on Church Street and I walk past it every week on my way to class. 

It has always caught my eye because of the beautiful nostalgic murals painted on the building's exterior.

NeighborMedia Reports from the Unity Rally at City Hall

On Monday, Feb. 6, Cambridge city officials and residents alike gathered on the lawn of City Hall to express their support for equality, social justice, and Cambridge's status as a sanctuary city. "We will put up our own wall, and our wall will keep people in and the bad people out," Mayor Denise Simmons said in defiance of President Donald Trump's executive orders relating to an anti-Muslim travel ban and building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Boston Rallies to Support Muslims and Immigrants

On Friday, Jan. 29, Donald Trump issued an executive order temporarily banning citizens from seven majority-Muslim countries - Iran, Iraq, Lybia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen - from entering the United States.

Travelers entering to the U.S. legally - students, visitors and greencard holders - were stopped at airports across the country and abroad.

In response to this decision, people gathered the next day to protest. This is footage from the Boston rally at Copley Square.
