APEC protests

Thousands of farm activists and union workers hurled bottles in a clash with police near a meeting of Pacific Rim leaders on Friday and had to be quelled by water cannon.

About 2,000 farmers and farm activists and 3,000 union workers took to the streets of Pusan to denounce APEC, the World Trade Organization and U.S. President George W. Bush, who was attending the leaders’ meeting.

ANSWER LA organizer John Beacham is in South Korea now attending a counter-conference and will report back at a forum in L.A. on Dec. 2.
