Thought we would update people about the situation in Pittsburgh right now. Things are
very tense. More news on www.pittsburgh.indymedia.org and www.pittsburghmarch20.org
Please forward - The below message was just posted on www.pittsburgh.indymedia.org
We are sending it out since the posters have indicated this action is in solidarity
with POGs planned actions on March 20th. We would also like to make you aware that
the Pittsburgh police have also just raided a medic house. Info sent out by the medics
is at the end of the message. Please come out tomorrow and show your support!
" 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
specific 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. "

Info on medic house raid! from www.pittsburgh.indymedia.org-

Around 10:15 on Friday, 15 cop cars stormed Beelan Street (where a medic
house is located. 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.


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? "
