Brazil - Anti-world Economic Forum
NPR's Martin Kaste reports that thousands of political activists meeting in Porto Alegre Brazil are trying to channel a protest movement against globalization into positive action. The delegates, who represent a broad range of political ideology, are holding their meeting as world leaders and corporate executives meet in Davos, Switzerland for the annual World Economic Forum. The Porto Alegre meeting is a follow-up to big protests held over the last 18 months in Washington, D-C, Seattle and Prague.
