About 150 protesters, some hoisting U.S. and other flags, marched into Downtown Pittsburgh to a mid-morning rally in Point State Park, airing grievances on topics ranging from the mask mandate to the 2020 presidential election.
The crowd, escorted by police on motorcycles and bicycles, set off from the North Shore near PNC Park a little after 9:45 a.m. and walked several abreast in chilly temperatures but bright sunshine, occasionally chanting “USA USA,” “What do we want? Freedom!” and “Impeach Wolf!” a reference to Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf.
They raised topics as they marched from gender identity to individual rights. They proceeded without incident and encountered no counter demonstrators.
