Video: Protesting the W.E.F. in New York City, 2002

by John Hamliton and Kristian Knutsen Thursday, Feb. 07, 2002 at 8:48 PM

Between February 2nd and 3rd, more than 200 were arrested outside the annual meetings of the World Economic Forum, which met in a veritable police state in New York City's elite Waldorf-Astoria hotel.

The Forum brings together thousands of top corporate and government leaders and other power brokers. The group normally meets in Davos, Switzerland, but moved its meetings to the New York, reportedly in a show of solidarity after the September 11 attacks. But some officials say it was because of the rising security costs of dealing with protests.

More than 4,000 NYPD were activated to protect the summit; they set up narrow "protest pens" along Park Avenue, shielding the world's billionaires and power brokers from the tidal wave of opposition outside their posh meetings in the Waldorf-Astoria hotel. But while the World Economic Forum could hide from civil society, it could not hide from the fact that it was as unpopular in New York as it has been in Davos.
