Thousands march against G20 in Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania — Thousands of people peacefully demonstrated during the G20 summit in Pittsburgh, but police reportedly arrested 40 as they clashed with a smaller group late Friday.

Waving banners and chanting slogans, protesters on Friday flooded into city streets lined with police in full riot gear, still tense after violent anti-G20 protests in the eastern US city late Thursday.

New clashes erupted late Friday on the University of Pittsburgh campus, where police dispersed a crowd of around 400 with pepper spray and a noise device that emits an ear-splitting sound, a local newspaper reported.

Around 40 protesters were arrested, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette newspaper.

  1. Compare this with the latest protests of the right wing nuts and Tea Baggers to get a view point of wazzup in the New World Order.

    Can you imagine what would happen if a protester was caught wearing a gun or even caught protesting anywhere near the G8 summit?
