Activists return to Oakland Recruiting Station
08/28/2005

On Saturday, August 27, the Pittsburgh Organizing Group (POG) held a non-violent picket at Oakland's military recruiting station, the site of last week's police assault in which the police Tasered two demonstrators and a 68-year old woman was bitten by a police dog. By noon, about 100 people lined the sidewalk on Forbes between Atwood St. and Oakland Ave. There was a sizeable presence of police in the vicinity -- including Pittsburgh Police Chief McNeilly -- but unlike last week, the police did not attack the crowd and the protest ended without incident.
