Teamsters to Form Human Shield Around Boston Bombing Victim’s Funeral Keeping Westboro Baptist Out



A heartwarming action taking place in Medford, MA this morning. Via Teamster Nation:

Hundreds of Boston Teamsters from Local 25 are answering the call to protect Krystle Campbell’s funeral from a possible protest by Westboro Baptist church members. Campbell, 29, was killed in the Boston Marathon bombings.

Hundreds of Teamsters formed a solid wall on the suburban roadway approaching the church. They stood silent guard as mourners drove slowly by on the way to the 11 a.m. funeral service at St. Joseph’s Church in Medford.

The Boston Globe also reports that the Teamsters “mobilized their members and other unions through Twitter and Facebook yesterday.”
