World Bank Protests

Protesters rallied in downtown Washington, D.C., today, but did not fulfill their pledge to shut down the nation's capital in advance of this weekend's World Bank and International Monetary Fund meetings. About 500 demonstrators were arrested. NPR's Andrea Seabrook reports the demonstrators touted many causes, some unrelated to the global financial institutions.
