If anyone can make it to Pittsburgh on March 20th please do! We need help. The below
message was posted on www.pittsburgh.indymedia.org POG is forwarding it as far as
possible. The Pittsburgh police have also just raided a medic house. All of this is
in the lead up to tomorrows March 20th protests- Complete protest info is available on
www.pittsburghmarch20.org
" The sixth floor of the CMU administration building has been locked down by protesters.
In protest of Carnegie Mellon University's extensive ties to the military we have locked
down the 6th floor of CMU's Administration building (Warner Hall, located at Forbes and
Morewood). We have not and will not enter any offices on the floor, nor will we in any
circumstance damage University property.

This is a peaceful action whose sole purpose is to draw attention to
the immoral and unethical policies and programs of CMU. Their
development of the killer robot dubbed "Gladiator" is an
abomination and affront to those who are daily witness to the
death and destruction currently being caused by the US military.

This action is in solidarity with the Pittsburgh Organizing Group's
call for non-violent protests on March 20. We encourage President
Cohon to immediately contact POG to begin discussions of ways
to address the specific concerns articulated by the community. "

We have been told that the police are questioning people about the
m20 protests tomorrow.

" Around 10:15 on Friday, 15 cop cars stormed Beelan Street.
They are currently blocking anyone from legal observing saying
that it's a police investigation. The Cop car number is 34-10 and
Officer Darcy is holding down the blockade.

THIS IS MOST RELATED TO THE March 20th
CONVERGENCE.

Two people walking through the woods witnessed 3 undercovers
coming out of the back of the house. They looked suprised to see
people walking. The woods are being patrolled. Four people
were/are home at the house. 3 people are inside the house. One
person is being detained and questioned about the protest
tommorrow. The two who were walking through the woods were
asked for I.D. and told to keep moving and not to take any
pictures. The cops said they were there for a building inspection.
At 10 at night? with a 9 car escort? "
