Police Investigate Graffiti Near Occupy Boston

This article is more than 7 years old.

Boston police are investigating a rash of graffiti in the city's financial district that appears to be in support of the nearby Occupy Boston movement.

Police say nearly two dozen locations, including banks, were hit over the weekend by spray-painted messages that say things such as "End the Fed" and "Tax the Rich." Some of the graffiti includes a capital A in a circle, a symbol used by anarchists.

Police say they have made no arrests but are looking at surveillance video from the area.

Protesters from Occupy Boston are living in a tent city on the edge of the financial district.

Some protesters say vandalism is counterproductive to their goals and they don't condone the graffiti.
