BTL:Special Report on D.C. IMF/World Bank Protests, Sept. 27-29, 2002

Featuring the voices of activists singer/writer Michelle Shocked, author Naomi Klein, Ralph Nader and Global Exchange founder Medea Benjamin by Between The Lines' Scott Harris

Thousands of activists came to Washington D.C. Sept. 27 through the 30 to protest the policies of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund -- but many also came to demonstrate their opposition to the Bush administration's drive for a new war against Iraq. Expecting civil disobedience actions, police presence in the nation's capitol was high.

On the first day of protests more than 600 were arrested for doing little more than congregating in a park. Between The Lines' Scott Harris files this report on the weekend of protests and the state of the anti-corporate globalization movement.
