Geneva: police use tear gas on WTO protesters

Police in Geneva, Switzerland, used water cannons, tear gas and rubber bullets Nov. 28 at a protest opposing the World Trade Organization summit that opens this week. Hooded “black bloc” anarchists who broke away from the main march set fire to at least four cars, broke shop windows and committed other acts of violence, police said. The group Anti-WTO Coordination said it “regretted being unable to finish the demonstration” and condemned “unreservedly all police repression violating democratic rights.” (AP, Nov. 29)

The ongoing world economic crisis will top the agenda in Geneva, as it did at the September G20 summit in Pittsburgh.
