WTO SQUAT - Associated Press Photo - Monday 29 November 199

Anti-World Trade Organization activists, hiding their faces behind
bandanas, crowd together Monday morning, Nov. 29, 1999 in Seattle to read
about their takeover the previous night of an abandoned building. About 60
people ended the day of protests Sunday by taking over the abandoned
12-unit apartment building on the edge of the downtown business district
Sunday night. The activists invited homeless persons to join them, saying
housing for the poor has become a casualty of global free trade. No arrests
were reported as of early today [12-29]. Protesters said they would stay as
long as it took to persuade the city to turn the building over to the
homeless. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
