G-20 Protest: 2

In Pittsburgh on September 25, 2009 at 5:04 am

G-20 064

The atmosphere was surreal: packs of friends sat around park benches, while ACLU members in special T-shirts threaded through the crowd, handing out flyers with emergency contact numbers — legal hotlines, in case we were arrested. As anti-corporate signs waved, a cluster of anti-abortion protesters stood grimly by the side, manning blown-up photographs of mangled fetuses. No two missions seemed to match.

The most mystifying sign of all: “Abort Babies/Not Wars.”
