Protests continued on the sixth and final day of IMF and World Bank meetings. NPR's Snigdha Prakash reports on how police in Washington, D.C., handled the thousands of demonstrators who tried to block delegates from the meetings. Though police did resort to using batons and pepper gas to control the crowd at times, they also managed a voluntary arrest agreement that allowed nearly four hundred demonstrators to be arrested without incident.
