Meanwhile, a group of unarmed protesters broke into the World Trade Organization’s lakeside headquarters in Geneva to protest against what they see as a WTO threat to people’s livelihoods. Shouting “Death to the WTO!” a dozen young men rushed past security guards and forced their way into the main lobby of the WTO headquarters, minutes before U.S. Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman was due to hold a news conference. The protesters chained themselves to the main staircase inside the WTO building, just outside the main council hall where Glickman was holding talks with WTO officials.
