In a scene familiar to anyone acquainted with World Trade Organization conferences, a group of anti-capitalism protesters smashed windows and set fire to cars in Geneva, denouncing the trade group and shouting anti-globalization slogans. Police in riot gear attempted to drive off the violent protesters, who were a small part of a largely peaceful crowd of 2,000 that had shown up to demonstrate against a WTO conference set for Monday. Some demonstrators said South Korean activists had been refused entry to Switzerland at the airport, and were stripped and body-searched. The protesters, who say the WTO favors corporations and fosters poverty, held signs with slogans like "We will not sell our souls to the multinationals."
