CONFIRMED: Protests Result in More Arrests

Six, to be exact, from the Pittsburgh Interfaith Impact Network (PIIN):

One member of PIIN spoke towards the end of the North Side Bus Tour, briefly describing their "Holy Ground" anti-violence campaign. I thought it was an extremely loosely affiliated organization -- turns out not so much anymore.

Tonight's heavily promoted Take Back the North Shore event will probably be interesting.


  1. PIIN is not a loose organization. I had been involved to a high level in the past, as one of the task force leaders for youth recreation.

    Our church is still involved.

    Who got arrested?

  2. I meant I had thought it was only loosely allied with NU's cause - guess I was wrong.

  3. Okay. Loose in its ties to certain specific issues. Sure. PIIN picks its battle. Then it fights hard.
