Anti-Globalization Activists Plan WTO Protest in Qatar

HeadlineSep 11, 2001

Anti-globalization activists are planning for protesters to land at Qatar in a flotilla during the World Trade Organization meetings in an effort to halt the launch of a new trade round. In what’s shaping up as one of the most ambitious anti-globalization protests to date, organizers are also preparing for demonstrations against stock exchanges and multinational corporations as part of a global day of action on November 9. This weekend, protest organizers are flying into London from San Francisco, Washington, D.C,. Southern India, and Honduras, to put together funding arrangements and logistical plans for the small convoy of ships, which will head for Qatar.
