Argentina: Mass protest against WTO brings Buenos Aires to standstill

Hundreds of anti-World Trade Organization protesters faced off with security forces in the streets of Buenos Aires on Sunday as they marched on the ministerial meeting taking place in the city centre. «We came to express that repudiation and say that it will not condition our lives and will not forge our destiny — it is the kind of organization that only wants us to go through hardships and... Еще concentrate more wealth,» Oscar de Isais from the Secretary of Association of State Workers organisation said. Protesters were stopped in their tracks by a road block placed by security forces, but established a HQ against the summit at the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Buenos Aires. Argentina blocked a number of anti-globalisation activists from entering the country ahead of the summit. The WTO summit will play host to 173 countries until December 13.
