Update 4:40 p.m.: Protesters are chanting "Let us go" as police seem to be going around arresting people at random. Police could be seen arresting a very young looking girl (15-17 from what we can tell), and people are screaming that they are arresting a "little girl" for no reason.

A group called Occupy Boston took over Dewey Square in Boston Friday night holding a 60s-style sit in.
"It doesn’t look like the politicians are serving the people any more," said John, a protestor who would only give his first name. "They’re serving people with money."
This is part of nationwide movement that began with a large protest last week on Wall Street.
"We're talking about government reform. We’re talking about finance reform," said Nadeem Mazen, from Occupy Boston. "And we’re opening up a national dialogue as part of a really big issue that’s on so many people’s minds."
A few blocks away a group called Take Back Boston lead hundreds of people marching from Boston Common to the Financial District.
At 100 Federal Street the protesters gathered at both entrances to the Bank of America building shouting "We got sold out." The crowd included dozens of families facing foreclosure.
Occupy Wall Street confirmed to Daily Kos on Thursday that there will be at least 26 solidarity events in the United States by Wednesday. Check out Occupy Together for more information.
