The Rainbow Times, New England's largest LGBT newspaper, on Sunday replaced a display box in Salem, Massachusetts that had been vandalized.

Seven people dressed in black can be seen on surveillance video placing fireworks in the box and running off as the box lights up the intersection of Washington and Essex at about 1:10 AM on Tuesday, August 23.

The paper's publisher and editor-in-chief and various city officials spoke at an event Sunday titled Reclaiming Salem MA, and helped unveil the new display box.

“We will not be silenced,” the paper's publisher, Grisel M. Ocasio, told the crowd, estimated at more than 50 people. “We are here to stay.”

Police Chief Mary Butler reiterated that the incident is being investigated as a hate crime.

Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll also spoke at the event, The Salem News reported.
