PITTSBURGH More than a hundred people took part in an anti-war protest in Pittsburgh on Saturday. The protest followed the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad by militiamen on New Years Day and the death of a top Iranian military general by a U.S. airstrike in Baghdad. It was a peaceful protest before a fight broke out and police had to step in.
Hosted in part by ANSWER Pittsburgh, which stands for Act Now to Stop War & End Racism Coalition, the local demonstration was held in coordination with other similar events across the country. NBC News reported there was a much larger anti-war demonstration held in Times Square in New York City on Saturday.
The event in Pittsburgh took place at Schenley Plaza and featured people holding signs and various speakers.
At one point, opposing sides started arguing before things turned physical and police officers had to step in to separate people. Our crew at the scene reported people began pushing and shoving, yelling curse words and ripping up signs.

The Anti-War Left is more Left than Anti-War. I hold them in contempt for being shameless hypocrites.
ANSWER = Chicom agitprop
“And where were these folks when Obama smoked Ghadaffi?”
Drinking boxed wine and playing with their 8 cats.
Paid protestors courtesy of Soros probably. This crap is always planned and organized. Preprinted signs too I’d betcha. Where were they when Obama was widening the war?
Houston. We have a subversive commie problem.
Or Bin Laden?
Now wait a minute.....I love boxed cabernet & we have a cat.........
You have one cat and a husband.
They have 8 cats and no husband.
Pittsburgh is quickly becoming a seat of thought much like Oxford. Oxford of The West.
There will be no fighting in the war room.
Trotskyites vs Stalinists.
Pro Iran lefties sorry more Americans werent killed.
100, in Pittsburgh? We had 100 at the 2nd grade boys basketball practice this morning.
You can’t make this stuff up.
“Over a hundred take part in anti-war protest in Pittsburgh before fight breaks out”
Reminds me of the old “I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out” thing.
A hundred? They used to turn out thousands in the ‘60’s, man.
Point taken ; )
They will report a hundred protesters but not the million against abortion that showed up in DC. Freakin scum!
A bunch of old ladies on the Pitt campus.
