Pittsburgh: the Anti-Seattle?

Posted By on Thu, Sep 24, 2009 at 10:27 AM

This afternoon's unpermitted march is still hours away, but early indications suggest that police may not need all those pairs of disposable handcuffs after all. 

Our Chris Young is at Friendship Park in Bloomfield, the starting point for a student "feeder march," which will later hook up with the main event. People were supposed to start gathering in Friendship Park at 11:00 a.m. But as of 11:30, there were only a half-dozen demonstrators on hand. 

It's early yet, and no one likes to be the first person to a party. But one volunteer organizer (who declined to be identified by name) seemed a bit downcast. 

"This is not working out too well," she said just before leaving.
