Summary of imterview: Mike Dolan, deputy director of Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch and field director of the Citizen's Trade Campaign (CTC), discusses the history and goals of the national movement against the corporate-managed free trade agenda. In this interview, which took place two weeks before the WTO ministerial, Dolan describes the anti-WTO coalition composed of a wide variety of organizations, including labor unions, environmental groups, consumer organizations, and faith-based groups. He describes the complex relationships between government, corporate and NGO representatives, and the preparations for the WTO protests, from a January 20 Labor rally at the Seattle Labor Temple to international and national organizing efforts. Dolan talks about the split between activists calling for reform and those calling for complete destruction of the WTO, discusses tensions between local organizations and his Washington D.C.-based NGO, and comments on limitations of the Internet in organizing WTO opposition. Yet he says organizing efforts went smoothly, with good responses from Labor and media.
