A summit of protest. (On the Line).

New York City

Thousands took to the streets of New York to protest the World Economic Summit, centered at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel on New York's Fifth Avenue. Activists were undeterred despite local editorials warning protesters that the city was not in the mood for trouble and despite the presence of an estimated 4,000 police officers assigned to buffer the haves from the have-nots. The gathering against globalization, corporate greed, and the war on terrorism was peaceful, with few arrests.
