A Facebook page has been set up to recruit people to volunteer to be a part of a "human wall" that will block Westboro Baptist Church protesters from the view of grieving family members of those who lost their lives on Monday at the Boston Marathon.

The church has made it clear that they intend on picketing the funerals.  Their leader, Reverand Fred Phelps made his wishes known on Twitter

 

Now, a grass roots movement to stop the Westboro Baptist Church from disturbing the interfaith service scheduled for Thursday at 11am at Boston's Cathedral of the Holy Cross...as well as the funerals of the victims.

The movement makes it clear that this is NOT to be a counter protest.  Volunteers should dress in all black and remain silent.  The purpose of the volunteers is to simply block the protesters from the view of mourners.
