Anti-War March Snakes Through Oakland
03/03/2003
Between 400-500 people rallied at the William Pitt Union today to listen to a range of speakers against the war in Iraq. The rally was followed by an unpermitted march that snaked through Oakland, leaving police officers confused and sometimes agressive [ [photo]1 | [photo]2 ], but ending without arrest.

A tense moment during the march ocurred when police and protestors [photo]faced off at St Paul's Cathedral at Fifth and Craig Street. They faced off for about 20 minutes, but eventually the police decided to [photo]disperse after talking to one young woman who explained that they were blocking traffic, and the protest ended without incident.

March organizers from the Pittsburgh Organizing Group charge that the city's permit process, which requires an application 45 days in advance, is unconstitutional.
