    PITTSBURGH -- A relatively small and peaceful group of about 500 protesters, most demanding new jobs programs, marched through city streets in the first full day of demonstrations targeting the Group of 20 economic summit later this week.

    The turnout was less than the 1,500 expected, and some protest groups blamed the city delays in issuing permits and the promised threefold expansion in the city's police force for the small turnout.

    If you want a JOB - go get one - get the skills that are in demand and you'll get one. DUH. I wish they would get these 'people' the hell out of my city.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    I am and I freely admit it. The kind of people who protest at these kinds of events are generally scum. I say the moments the masks go on - the order should be shoot to kill. Anyone who is hiding their face is up to no good. :mad:
