Students Protest WEF

To the Editor: Thousands of protesters came to New York City to participate in workshops, forums and the mass protest of the World Economic Forum. The protest was against the large schmoozing of corporate executives and heads of states. The idea of the conference is that elitists of countries and corporations decide how to carve up the world – for a $27,000 yearly membership. Many anti-globalization and anti-capitalist activists see the WEF’s new home in Manhattan as disgusting and insulting. Kathleen Brown Class of 2005
