Youth-led protesters against police brutality and environmental racism marched today through Downtown Pittsburgh for more than four hours, starting and ending at the City-County Building along Grant Street.

Around 150 people joined in, stopping a few times along Liberty Avenue and Grant Street. In response to Pittsburgh Post-Gazette management barring some journalists from protest coverage, the group of protesters circled up near the August Wilson African American Cultural Center, and chanted "Fuck the Post-Gazette" numerous times. The protesters also called out a photographer who was on assignment for Post-Gazette and told everyone in the march not let the P-G photographer take photos of the protest.
