#1 Ahead of G-20, Protesters Call for New Jobs09-20-2009, 11:29 PMBy KRIS MAHER
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. Protestors were also critical of comments made by President Barack Obama in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, downplaying the effectiveness of mass protest on abstract issues such as global capitalism.
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.
