PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — As many as 250 “Occupy Pittsburgh” protestors marched in Oakland Wednesday night, gathering on the steps of Soldiers and Sailors Hall for speeches.

It was a show of solidarity for a protestor in Oakland, Calif., who suffered a fractured skull recently in a confrontation with police.

Brian Gonnella, of Lawrenceville, says local protestors believe police in Oakland, Calif., used “brutal tactics.”

Pittsburgh police say even though the marchers did not have a permit, there were no arrests, and no reports of vandalism in the neighborhood.

Police made sure the marchers remained on the sidewalks to minimize traffic problems in the busy Oakland neighborhood.
