On August 19, 2017, Dr.SHIVA led a Free Speech Rally, a Shiva 4 Senate event, at the Parkman Bandstand in the Boston Commons. Dr.SHIVA is a brown skinned man who has spent his entire life fighting racism. Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, at the time, was running for another term against a black man, Tito Jackson. Walsh defamed Dr.SHIVA and characterized the Rally as a “Nazi,” “White Supremacist,” “KKK” event, in order to present himself as a fighter against racism.
Walsh’s defamation and media messaging incited 40,000 people to show up to protest against the Free Speech Rally. On August 14, 2020, Dr.SHIVA filed a lawsuit against Mayor Marty Walsh and Commissioner Bill Evans for defamation and violation of his First Amendment Rights.
