ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Boston police say 27 people were arrested during day-long demonstrations in Boston to protest hate speech a week after a woman was killed at a Virginia white-supremacist rally. The city largely avoided a repeat of last weekend's bloody street battles in Charlottesville, Virginia, where one woman was killed.

They also banned sticks, including flagpoles, bats and all weapons.
