NPR's Martin Kaste reports that thousands of political activists meeting in Porto Alegre Brazil are trying to channel a protest movement against globalization into positive action.

The Porto Alegre meeting is a follow-up to big protests held over the last 18 months in Washington, D-C, Seattle and Prague.
