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. He is among the WTO critics who raise concerns over the trade organization’s ability to override local, state and national laws and regulations, and impose its own set of trade standards on communities around the world. 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.

Guests:

  • Tom Hayden, California State Senator
