Group planning ‘mass march’ to disrupt summit

The group, calling itself the Pittsburgh G-20 Resistance Project, is declaring a “People’s Uprising, a Sept. 24 mass march to disrupt the G-20 summit,” according to a statement on its Web site.

The group, which is likely to include a coalition of anarchists and other self-described “anti-authoritarians,” has called for a variety of “autonomous actions,” or efforts to attack various locations they view as symbols of global capitalism.

The news release came as lawyers for several other groups asked a federal court to order the City of Pittsburgh to allow protesters to use two city parks for camping and “tent cities” and to grant a permit for a march organized by a coalition of groups that have no announced plans to disrupt the G-20.
