It is not unheard of for agitators to plant themselves into a protest for the purpose of agitating a nonviolent action into a violent one, and thereby destroying the credibility of the organizers. I hope that has not happened here, because the WTO leadership had actually invited some of the protesters to meetings during the sessions.
