Join us for the 16th annual Anti-Imperialist Picnic!

Are you looking for something different on July 4th? Tired of the red, white, and blues year after year? Do you wish to declare Independence from corporate greed, and imperial plunder? Consider gathering for the annual Anti-Imperialist Picnic. Instead of celebrating the founding fathers’ slave republic, the military, and colonial conquest, let’s celebrate the resistance to imperialism, colonialism, apartheid, and the resilience of working people worldwide. Free Palestine! 

Enjoy grilling and chilling with friends? Well then, the Anti-Imperialist Picnic is for you! On July 4th at 12 Noon come on out to the Allston/Brighton Charles riverside. It will be right next to the canoe and kayak rental location. There are 3 parking areas along Soldiers Field Road. We are accommodating all dietary choices with separate grills for Vegans and non-Vegans. Feel free to bring whatever food and drinks you’d like. Come spend the day free of patriotic nonsense. There will be planned performances by Rafael Medina, Parama Chattopadhyay, Antuan Castro del Rio, BBAM, and more, along with an Open Mic for poetry and music! Look for our banners. No Stars & Stripes please.

Thursday, July 4, 2024, 12 Noon – 6:00 PM   Call: 617-230-9382 for more info.
