As a small crowd had assembled outside of the David L. Lawrence
Convention Center to voice their opposition to the policies of the
Bush junta, a small black bloc removed police barricades and
acted as a buffer between police and demonstrators. Soon, an
attempt reclaim public space and advance towards the parade
route resulted in a bicycle platoon/ banner shoving match, which
soon escalated with blows exchanged on both sides of the impasse.
Eventually, the demonstrators were forced back onto the sidewalk,
and barring a few tense incidents so called "peace" was restored.
Several anti-authoritarians had apparently crossed an imaginary
line, and the State responded violently, unnarrest attempts were
brutally thwarted, resulting in beatings, 6 arrests, and capitalist
media reported one comrade was bitten on the stomach by a
police dog.

About 30 people participated in an unpermitted jail solidarity
march as it snaked its way to the Allegheny County Jail, without
incident. Comrades are expected to be released sometime today.
