i’ve been chatting with a friend who’s in Pitts and experienced the first use of LRAD against american citizens. or at least she said it was the first time. is that correct? i know the hum-v’s with the satellite dish things on top have been in the streets during many mass mobilizations, but were they used? i saw some in denver at the dnc. i remember them from footage of the 2004 conventions too.

Notice how Obama, France and the UK made the announcement about Iran’s nuclear facility today.

It was a perfect media blitz by the G20. The Empire’s War Drum is a LOT louder then the anarchists and it’s going to stay that way as long as the anarchists only come out in REACTION to something that they neither choose nor control (i.e. G20).

Students opposing the G20 set fire to a trash dumpster on Thursday night, 9/24/2009. During the evening several odd incidents were reported, including an officer in riot gear stepping into the lobby of a student building and shouting “Anyone arrested will be expelled,” which prompted students to scream and run.

Update from the Pittsburgh G-20 Resistance Project Legal Working Group

In total we estimate that at least 170 people were arrested during the protests against the G-20 summit in Pittsburgh on September 24-26. Efforts to nail down an exact number of arrestees have been hampered by mass arrests and round-ups in Oakland; the fact that hundreds of people around Pittsburgh outraged by the policies of the G-20 spontaneously took to the streets and are not plugged into our networks or communications systems; and the fact that police have been releasing protesters from at least two different locations miles away from each other in Pittsburgh’s militarized city center.

We are not getting information from inside the jail and jail officials have intermittently stopped answering their phones. Jail officials have been general uncooperative and have harassed legal workers over the phones.

Thursday:
We estimate that there were somewhere around 60 people arrested during the demonstrations on Thursday. We are currently tracking 8 individuals who are still being held in relation to Thursday’s demonstrations. Bail for the arrestees still being held ranges from $1,000 to $15,000 with some being given the opportunity to post bond at 10 percent.

Friday:
Our reports indicate that at over 110 people were arrested related to protest activity between Friday morning and Saturday. All arrestees were initially taken to SCI Pittsburgh on the North Side for booking. Everyone there has either been released from SCI Pittsburgh or taken to Allegheny County Jail for arraignment. Current reports indicate that there are still somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 people at ACJ awaiting arraignment. Very little information on the charges people are being held on is available at this time. We are receiving information from inside the jail indicating that at least two people inside ACJ are injured and are not receiving medical assistance.

Continued Vigil at Allegheny County Jail:
All G-20 arrestees are being held at Allegheny County Jail at 950 Second Ave. A jail solidarity vigil is ongoing outside of the jail. Please come to show your support for the arrestees. They CAN hear us inside!

Confiscated Personal Property:
Many arrestees who have been released are reporting that their personal property is still being held. Jail officials are either denying that they have the property or insisting that personal property cannot be picked up until Monday. Many of the arrestees need to get their keys, cell phones, and wallets back so they can get home for work, school or to take care of other obligations. We are working to get arrestees’ property released as quickly as possible.

Arrestee Meetings
There will be two meetings for arrestees at the Pittsburgh G-20 Resistance Project convergence space at 4374 Murray Ave.
The first meeting is at Noon on Sunday, September 26th
The second meeting is at 7:00 on Thursday, October 1st

This meeting is for arrestees only. No media or supporters will be allowed to attend.

——
Jail Solidarity Rally
There will be a jail solidarity rally outside Allegheny County Jail at 7:00 pm. Bring signs, banners, noisemakers. Our friends CAN hear us inside jail.

We demand that:
All arrestees be released
All charges be dropped
Medical care be given for arrestees currently being held
All personal items (backpacks, cameras, cell phones, etc.) taken from arrestees be returned immediately

Street Report from the G20: How pitifully fearful our leaders have become: For days, downtown Pittsburgh, home to the G20, was a turned into a militarized people-free ghost town. Sirens screamed day and night. Helicopters crisscrossed the skies. Gunboats sat in the rivers. The skies were defended by Air Force jets. Streets were barricaded by huge cement blocks and fencing. Bridges were closed with National Guard across the entrances. Public transportation was stopped downtown. Amtrak train service was suspended for days.

Robocops Come to Pittsburgh: Mike Ferner, Truthout: “No longer the stuff of disturbing futuristic fantasies, an arsenal of ‘crowd control munitions,’ including one that reportedly made its debut in the US, was deployed with a massive, overpowering police presence in Pittsburgh during last week’s G-20 protests.”

The Battle Of Pittsburgh:

The wild G20 protest in Pittsburgh a few days ago was the most successful mass action by US anarchists in a decade. A short post like this could not fully describe what took place. What was one of the largest and most courageous black blocs in US history gathered at Arsenal Park in Pittsburgh on September 24th and went on a rampage. According to at least one media report the black bloc from Arsenal Park contained 2,000 people at its height. Later that night the equally courageous Bash Back march came unleashed on a gentrified business district. The 9/24 actions were like something out of Greece. Businesses suffered $50,000 worth of property damage. The government spent $19 million on G20 security and sent 2,500 National Guard troops and 4,000 police to Pittsburgh. The state’s G20 security operation in Pittsburgh failed. Around 60 arrests were made on 9/24. At least half of those arrested on 9/24 were local college students involved in a standoff with police that was not related to the black bloc actions. The police promised 1,000 arrests but made less than 200 and most of those arrested were not anarchists. The low number of arrests at the G20 in Pittsburgh sharply contrasted with the high number of arrests at previous mass actions like the 2008 RNC protest, the Miami FTAA protest in 2003 and the Seattle WTO protest in 1999. The police used sonic weapons on protesters for the first time in the US. The police also used batons, tear gas and rubber bullets to stop the riots. The following night the police took out their frustration on local college students again and arrested about a hundred of them at a peaceful gathering. The ten year anniversary of the Battle of Seattle is two months away and finally we have something similar to show for it. The Battle of Pittsburgh that took place last week rivals the 1999 Battle of Seattle and was definitely the largest and most successful anarchist mobilization here since then. The Pittsburgh G20 protest is a turning point for the US anarchist movement, one that points upward to revolution.

Pittsburgh Police Challenged over Use of Sound Cannons During G-20 and for Wrongfully Arresting Dozens of University of Pittsburgh Students: Dozens of University of Pittsburgh students who say they were wrongfully arrested and subject to heavy-handed police tactics during the G-20 meeting last week are calling for an investigation into the police actions. Nearly 200 people were arrested during the protests last weekend. The vast majority of the arrests occurred last Friday night in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh, where the University of Pittsburgh is located. Listen/Watch/Read
