Protests Against the WTO

In Seatle next week, trade officials from 140 nations will gather for a World Trade Organization meeting. Tens of thousands of protestors will also be there, urging the ministers to stop the drive for more open trade until the WTO becomes more sensitive to environmental, labor and human rights concerns. NPR's John Ydstie reports on the WTO and its protestors.
