M20: Close to 1,000 March Downtown
03/21/2003
The day after the war on Iraq began, close to 1,000 protestors came to downtown Pittsburgh to voice their opposition to the war. After a brief rally at the Federal Building, protestors marched throughout downtown and into the South Side. The protests ended in the mass arrests of at least 122 peaceful demonstrators.

Earlier in the day, the Student Strike Rowdy Student Brigade disrupted classes at the University of Pittsburgh and one student was arrested. [1] [1]

After the evening's rally that began at 5:00, a peaceful but disruptive unpermitted march went through the city, ending by police boxing in the remaining protestors and mass arresting them.
