Activists call for action beyond protesting at final Civil Saturdays march in Pittsburgh | TribLIVE.com

Hundreds of people marched across several Pittsburgh neighborhoods in the name of social justice and police accountability during an hours-long, peaceful event Saturday afternoon.

The demonstration marked the 16th and final Civil Saturdays, a weekly protest organized by the Black, Young, & Educated youth-led organization in support of the broader Black Lives Matter movement.

“We’ve been on a 16-week journey,” organizer Giuseppe Bagheera, 18, of Pittsburgh’s North Side, told the crowd encircling her outside the Target department store at Penn and Centre avenues. “If this is something which you really are passionate about, which you should be, I need you to not just go to another protest, I need you to be a voice.”

The decision to end the weekly event was made about three days ago, Bagheera said, with organizers needing a break and encouraging other local groups and individuals to move forward with other events and activities that support the movement.
