Anti-globalization demos in Washington

Sun, 21 Oct 2007 11:56:00
Anti-globalization rallies began on Friday.
Thousand stage anti-globalization rallies in streets of Washington ahead of International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank meetings.

Demonstrations continued Saturday for the second successive day with crowds chanting slogans in protest at IMF and World Bank policies. They said the industrial countries' push for globalization has had no results but the spread of poverty in poor and developing countries.

A woman was reportedly injured and taken to hospital. Several window shops were smashed during the protests as well.

The rallies were held under tight security measures as ministers from around the world were to attend the meetings.

Several protesters were beaten and arrested by the police Friday on the first day of the rallies.
