Foes of Globalization in Europe Vow to Press Ahead
Anti-globalization activists in Europe say they will press forward with their protests. Some of them argue that the tragedy on Tuesday came about as a direct result of U.S. foreign policy and that capitalism is to blame for the lack of security in the world. Anti-globalization types in the U.S., however, voiced concerns that authorities would be quick to crack down on protests and categorize them as a form of terrorism. (Thankfully, even the most radical activists said they didn’t condone the terrorist attacks on Tuesday.) The activists drew sharp distinctions between vandalism against private property owned by corporations, which some of them supported, and violence against people, which all of them condemned.
