International Protest Held Right here in Pittsburgh.
Pittsburgh welcomes protest! In September, 2009, the G20 Summit was held here in Pittsburgh, and this lomographer couldn’t resist this once in a lifetime chance to record this international protest. What an amazing experience… The whole shebang kicked off in Oakland by the University of Pittsburgh with speeches while the various protesters assembled. There was a serious police presence, but overall throughout the entire protest, the police pretty much behaved themselves. The day before this protest took place, a group of anarchists tried to wreak havoc in Lawrenceville, a progressive Pittsburgh neighborhood, and there was one tear gas canister thrown, but that’s about as far as it went. I wish I had been at that impromptu protest to catch shots of the dumpsters being rolled down the hill on Penn Avenue. All the horror stories we heard about what was going to happen here based on what happened in London thankfully did not come to pass.
We marched downtown along Fifth Avenue to the Allegheny Courthouse, where more speeches ensued. I even say a bus of police officers go by only to hear someone screaming my name – it was a good friend from high school yelling at me from the bus! It was a unique experience to have this happen in our town. The main message of the protests was oneness and people over greed. I am honored to have joined in this out crying of the collective human voice for love, liberty, equality, and care for each other.
