"For the second straight year POG [Pittsburgh Organizing Group] managed to get itself as
a contingent in the local St Patrick's Day parade. With 5-gallon plastic drums, water jugs,
and other improvised instruments we brought the sweet sounds of resistance to the streets.
While drumming we received an overwhelmingly positive mix of cheers and encouragement. At
intervals we would cease drumming and break into chants, at which point the reaction from
the crowd began to vary. At this point some peoples smiles turned to booing and various
expletives or peace signs, cheering, and screams of ya!
Pictures can be seen at:

The three chants of the group were:

1: Resist, Resist, Raise up your fist, Resist, Resist, Raise up your fist

2: Bloomfield rocks, end the occupation, Bloomfield rocks, stop war now

3: Who let the bombs drop? Bush, Bush, Bush And who do we gotta stop?
Bush, Bush, Bush And who funded Bin Laden? Bush, Bush, Bush Just like his daddy
taught him, Bush, Bush, Bush And who steals food from Children? Bush, Bush,
Bush In Iraq and Afghanistan, Bush, Bush, Bush And who is a fascist? Bush,
Bush, Bush The world’s worst terrorist? Bush, Bush, Bush

(the rest of that chant that we didn’t use is: Cops on the streets,
threaten to beat ya all Don’t let them hurt you get rid of Dubya Don’t
just fight the symptoms, tear down the system Actualize solution,
global revolution) "
