Among the critics of the WTO is also California State Senator Tom Hayden, who participated in some of the protests against the World Trade Organization.

Juan and I had the chance to interview Senator Hayden yesterday at a hotel just across the street from the Westin Hotel, where President Clinton and hundreds of WTO delegates hunkered down.
