Protesting Haditha Massacre and Other Atrocities
by Nina van Zandt Thursday, Jun. 08, 2006 at 3:55 PM

Pittsburgh anti-war protesters express anger over Haditha and ongoing atrocities. In response to the recent news of atrocities in Iraq 60 people gathered in Shadyside for a short rally and march. Participants called for an end to the Iraq war and expressed revulsion at news of recent atrocities. The march stopped traffic and took over Walnut Street in Shadyside. Protesters moved street signs and a dumpster into the road, smashed at least one window, and threw rocks at corporate stores. Ten police cars, an animal control van, and two unmarked cars showed up and forced the march onto the sidewalk. The march proceeded for another hour through Shadyside and Bloomfield.

The cops ended up holding up traffic all on their own as they stopped to chat about the protesters and blocked two lanes.
