The article's title was"May Day sees world march"
subtitleeople across Asia,Europe take to streets as recession takes roll.



The sentence was"On Friday tens of thousands of people gathered for May Day rallies across Germany and police were bracing for pitched battles later in the day with far-left demonstrators.

You are supposed to tell me what's the meaning of the whole sentence,and the usage of these words:"bracing""pitched",I just can't find them out in the Dictionary


Thx a trillion!

I've found the answer by myself,brace for approximately equals to "prepare for","pitched battle means a severe battle.
I doubt whether there's anybody alive here?Come on,it's weekend.

星期五德国成千上万的人参加了劳动节的聚会,之后警察们则忙于应对与极左派示威分子之间的激战。

I think brace for is a phrase, meaning tackle/handle;
Pitched battles refer to very intense battles.
