Pittsburgh Responds to Torture of Iraqis by American Soldiers
06/07/2004
Protesters imitate Abu Ghraib torture pictures On a Saturday around noon, about thirty protesters gathered in East Liberty to protest the abuse and torture of prisoners in Iraq. Organized by the Thomas Merton Center's Anti-War Committee, some protesters re-enacted the infamous photos of Abu Ghraib prison abuse. The event was scheduled to occur before the weekly peace vigil in East Liberty held by Pittsburgh's chapter of a group called Black Voices for Peace.

The demonstration was similar to a recent action in Boston which resulted in felony charges against the protester.

Members of Pittsburgh Indymedia's Radio Collective went to Downtown Pittsburgh to interview people on their response to the images of torture at Abu Ghraib, and how they felt the response has been. A wide range of opinions were represented.
