Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item


November 30, 1999, is seen as a day of infamy-the day the World Trade Organization was battled head-on in Seattle. Media coverage, with its images of gas masks, tear-gas victims, bullying cops, rampaging hoodlums, and ruffled WTO dignitaries, presented a riveting picture of violence in the streets. But there was another battle of far greater consequence. People from around the world converged that day to show solidarity for working people and to voice their concerns about child labor, the environment, and global economic justice.
