march at Prague summit
Unleashing a fresh round of fury against
economic globalization, 5,000 protesters marched on the IMF
and World Bank summit Tuesday, throwing firebombs, sticks
and rocks at police who responded with clubs, tear gas and
water cannons. The ruckus left at least 69 people injured
and turned Prague into a smoky battle zone. Authorities pushed
demonstrators back each time they approached the communist-era
convention center where the titans of global capitalism had
huddled to ponder economic issues. Hundreds of activists got
so close, however, that officials temporarily stopped the
International Monetary Fund and World Bank delegates and staff
from leaving before evacuating them through a subway station
closed to the public.

in the meeting room discussing the company's future.
