The largest demonstration against the Group of 20 economic summit brought more than 500 protesters into the street in Lawrenceville.
At 3 p.m. the group was moving inbound on Liberty Avenue, where police in riot gear warned people in several languages to disperse or face arrest.
Protesters rallied in Arsenal Park, and then spread to streets around the park at 40th Street and Penn Avenue, some lying down in the street and others chanting: "Bankers, bankers, watch your back, we don't protest, we attack!"
Tear gas fired at G20 protesters: RIOT police fired tear gas today at protesters...
Shades of Seattle.
Also, site for pictures:
The only pic at present is of a banner on a bridge overlooking downtown Pgh.
Let me amend that, lots of pictures.
